    Good. Great choice of shock. Affordable, and perform really well. I love my Bilstein B110 and have no plans to change brand/model shock for the life of the truck. They allow me to use every millimeter of travel the Dakars have to offer.


    Welcome. I read a lot of your posts in Leo's build and other CO builds. :)

    My experience has been the exact opposite. Maybe because I have no snow / wet conditions. :notsure:

    What I can tell you is that in my experience, leaf pack squeaks come from the leaf ends vibrating as they move against each other. And IMO, mechanical separation of leaf s the only permanent solution worth while.

    I previously used to use zip ties to control the situation. Solving the Dakar Leaf Spring Squeak (obsoleted by isolators).

    Any sand or dust between my Dakar leaves gets pulverized as the leaf flexes and blown out by driving on the interstate. In seven years, I've never had a problem there.

    By adding in the 1/2" thick leaf, I've increased my calculated margin of safety on the shock to 0.91".

    Change the seller to someone else, there are (96) sellers. For example, Amazon sells it and it's a prime item, have it in two days. :thumbsup:

    Here is a funny story I wish to tell.

    When I took the springs off the truck I threw them in the car and drove to North County Spring shop. When I was there talking to the owner, I encountered some trouble. He said that it would be $200 to take the pack apart and install the isolators and reassemble the pack.

    There is no way I was going to pay that.

    After further discussion, he wouldn't do it for anything less. He would however drill the holes and provide the isolators for $4 each but I had to tear down the pack.

    He looked at me and said, I'm going to get paid... I looked at him and said I'll be back!

    I didn't have any tools with me so I hit up the Harbor Freight that was two blocks away for a ratchet, sockets, crescent wrench, and C-clamp for $30.

    I broke down both packs in 15 minutes on the side walk and handed them the leaves.

    30 minutes of my time (shopping / wrenching), plus $30 in tools saved about $148.

    I could have returned the HF tools but I wanted a set for my car, so I kept them. :)

    The shop owner, Tony has had his shop since 1972. When I paid him the $52, Old dude said, "You know... When you love what you do for work, it's like not even being at work.... Be careful out there." :)

    I crossed a lot of stuff off my list in the last week. Kind of insane, even by my standards...

    • Crazy Joker Rear Seat hitch pins
    • Total Chaos Bedside stiffeners
    • Cut Drivers Bedside
    • Internal Tailgate repair
    • Tailgate reinforcement
    • EZ-Down tailgate strut assist
    • Reinstall Rebuilt drive shaft
    • CMC cutting / welding
    • Clean frame and move wiring
    • Boxed rear end / Frame plating welding
    • Rear leaf pack reconfigure and refurbishment.
    • reattach frame wiring,
    • paint muffler (it's getting hideous).
    I still have some clean up to to do such as,

    • put front mud flaps back,
    • measure drive line angles,
    Here is my front end list.
    • Spindle gussets
    • Replace torn Moob UBJ boot
    • Install fully rebuilt factory performance factory LCA's
    • Install Bilstein 6112's
    • ECGS Bushing
    • Front brake lines, and replace brake line tubing
    • Front brake rotors
    • Front brake pads
    • Buy one Toyota inner diff dust seal 90304-A0001
    • Alignment.

    I need more time...

    Everything in life seems to rely on both time and money. The trick is figuring out how to have both simultaniously.

    Quoted for truth! I am almost done dumping money into the Tacoma. Maybe another 4K to finish it off. :ballchain: I can see the end!

    Thanks!

    Thanks. I roped in a coworker to assist if needed. :)

    Looking good!
