    OME Dakar leaf springs feature:
    • Draw Tapered & Diamond Cut Leaves: Ensure the load is progressively distributed over a larger surface area, reducing the high stresses that develop at leaf ends. This provides increased ride quality and protection against leaf breakage, significantly increasing the spring life.
    • Bolt Clamps & Liners: The leaf clamps are bolted to allow installation of anti squeak nylon liners.
    • Fully Scragged & Load Tested: Scragging ensures the spring takes a permanent 'set' which reduces the risk of sagging. Load testing ensures the spring meets the required specification.
    • Graphite Coating: To further reduce the friction between the spring leaves & friction pads.
    • Military Wrap: Designed to provide added safety.
    • Anti Friction Pads: Regreasable nylon interleaf liners reduce friction at the leaf tips where the load is the greatest.
    • Flat Axle Seat Area: Allows a positive, safe axle mount reducing spring stress & increasing spring life.
    • Shot Peening: The tension side of all leaves is shot peened to reduce spring stress. This process can double the life of a spring.
    • Two-stage Leaf Pack: Featured on most rear springs for optimum comfort. When unladen the vehicle is largely riding on the primary stage, with the secondary stage providing additional support when a heavy load is added.
    Please note: Most Emu Dakar leaf springs have all the listed features, but where design or a physical limitation exists one or more of these features may not be incorporated. Please check with your OME licensed fitter for further information.

    I didn't notice them being the same, I thought the wheelers were progressive and the toytec ones looks different then what I imagined the wheelers set to look like. Sorry if you guys wanna delete that's fine haha
    I heard the sll pros are hit or miss: some people like them some don't. I can't justify spending 600 for dakars or alcans, don't have the 200 bucks. I might look into local shops. I'm looking for both lift and flex.
