    Getting ready to buy the Dakar Rear Leaf packs. I will purchase the longer u bolts and axle shims. Can I use the stock bushings? Or do I need to buy new bushings also?

    Yes, I've ordered some Sway Away Coil overs for the front and shocks for the rear. With the Dakars I ordered the U bolts, and the shims. Toytec told me the factory bushings should work fine since they are almost brand new.
    I've not heard about the ARB FK29 Spacer. How does that work and where exactly does it go?

    when i got my dakars they came with the bushings already pressed. and ya, if buying new u bolts might as well do the flip instead of having that crap hanging down waiting to catch rocks and stumps. not sure what shocks you will be running but mine are 1 inch longer than the dakars extended and my stock brakelines are good, very very easy to make a $2 relocation piece also if you need it.
