    I'm worried....

    You're selling these leaf springs, as in, you're a shop?

    Anyway to answer your question, the springs you linked are commonly used by a lot of people on the forum with myself included.

    I don't understand why you would think they would "sag".

    This leaf pack is rated at 2.25" of lift compared to stock height.

    Is the Tacoma you're working on equipped with a stock leaf pack and block? How big is this block?

    By the way, make sure you get the necessary bushings for the shackles as well as the exhaust relocation kit.

    Sadly we never got a chance to install these on our Tacoma. The person that wants to buy them has a 2001 Tacoma with Bilstein 5100 and one 4 inch block total 6 inch lift. They want to get rid of the block and just do new leaf springs. Would these still work? I have read they give a 4 inch lift measured from the hub to the fender before ad after installation.

    Well fortunately this place is filled with tons of experience.

    As for the "measurement", I'm just referring to the overall height of the vehicle in comparison to stock.

    I achieved roughly 2.25" of lift over the height as if I was still sitting on my stock leaf pack.

    Initial lift will be much higher but they settle after a few thousand miles.

    Here's an example -

    And about 2 thousand miles later -

    Even with additional weight, it doesn't sag -

    Thank you they decided to pass they really don't want to have any blocks. Not sure how they can achieve that with Bilstein 5100 plus we are in Hawai'i and shipping alone for Dakar is usually about $500

    Understand; Bilstein 5100s and OME Dakar leaf springs are a popular combination here.

    OME springs up front with Bilstein 5100s will only make it a nice complete kit (not to mention adding a better off road feel).

    You've also got the full OME kit which come with Nitrocharger shocks that people favor as well.

    I used to run Fox 2.0 in the rear but currently have Bilstein 5100 in the rear because one of my Fox shocks blew.

    Up front Fox 2.5, but at 2" of lift, which you can achieve for less money with the kits I mentioned above.

    If you want to sell your Dakar OME CS046RA/B leaf springs, we have a 1st generation Tacoma marketplace forum that you can post your sale items at. I hope this information is helpful to you.

    I took those pictures at a local grocery parking lot in the evening. The fires in northern California were going on and the air was smoky.
