Old Man Emu Dakar Leaf Packs (PAIR) - ONLY LEAF PACKS for 2005+ Toyota Tacoma
These leaf packs are specifically designed to ensure the load is distributed over the entire surface area. This reduces the high stresses that typically develop at leaf ends. These packs provide a favorable on road ride while increasing the load carrying capability over stock leaf packs. The leaf clamps used on these packs feature Teflon liners which are adhered to the inner side walls to prevent metal and metal contact. In addition to this, each of the leafs are separated with Teflon pads to help eliminate squeaks. These packs are fully scragged & load tested ensuring the spring takes a permanent "set" which reduces the risk of sagging. This pack is available in both Medium Duty and Heavy Duty, see below for more info
- The "Medium Duty" leaf pack (EL111R) will provide approx. 2.75" lift (2005-2015 Tacoma) or 2.0" lift(2016+ Tacoma) while supporting 0 lbs - GVW
- The "Heavy Duty" leaf pack (EL112R)will provide approx. 2.75" lift (2005-2015 Tacoma) or 2.0" lift (2016+ Tacoma) while supporting a constant load of 660 lbs.
NOTE: This is just the leaf packs by themselves. Longer u-bolts and full bushing kit are needed and are sold separately. If you need these items please check out our Dakar Package. Also these packs were spec'd out to be used with the OME rear shocks (60091); however, should you choose to pair them with another shock please ensure the extended/collapsed length is appropriate.
ATTN: THIS PRODUCT SHIPS FOR FREE TO THE LOWER 48 STATES!
The rear of the Tacoma varies in weight from one side to the other, this is due to the gas tank location which is located on the Driver’s Side. As a result it is not uncommon for a lean to be present both before and after a lift. In most cases this lean is more pronounced following a lift whereas pre-lift a lean may not have been visible. We at HeadStrong Off-Road are not responsible for this lean.
**ATTENTION** Due to the size and weight of leafs springs they do not come boxed or wrapped from the manufacturer and they ship out to the consumer in the same fashion. It is common to receive leafs with scratches, gouges, and the clip pads can be broken and/or missing on them. Since these are under the vehicle and exposed to debris, rocks, etc they will continue to get scratched, gouged, and the plastic clip pads will break and fall off. The packs can be taken apart and painted if the consumer so chooses. Be sure to keep track of the proper orientation of the leafs should you disassemble them. Here is a product review going over some of this.
Also it is common for leaf packs to squeak. Though there are anti-squeak pads in place, noise can still occur. It is the nature of metal whenever it comes in contact with metal. There are some ways to help reduce the amount of noise however it is not a guarantee. Please review this popular thread discussing this matter for possible remedies.
If the customer buys this product they understand that the leaf springs will not be in perfect condition and fully accepts this fact and will trouble shoot (paint, grease, source replacement clips) if need be. Headstrong Off-Road is not responsible for imperfect leaf springs and the consumer can feel free to reach out to ARB directly if they are dissatisfied with the leaf spring
