FOX Level 4 Kit w/ OME Dakar Leaf Packs - 05+ Toyota Tacoma (FOX05LVL4-DAKAR)
This kit mirrors our Level 4 kit in addition to providing added load carrying capability to the rear by incorporating the use of the OME Dakar full leaf packs. Both front and rear shocks offer vehicle specific valving and are designed to be mounted using the factory upper and lower mounts (minor modification may be needed). For the front remote reservoirs, both the mounting plates and hardware are included. Both front and rear shocks offer incredible performance and precise handling on and off-road.

NOTE: We recommend cycling the suspension (full up/ down travel), to ensure any other components do not need to be added or modified. Also note that the rear reservoir were designed for a Tundra. The reservoir on one side will have to be rotated to be installed on the Tacoma. Failure to do this process properly can result in loss of oil. Lower shock bushings will also need to be changed out. Please source those elsewhere. We highly recommend having a licensed professional install this suspension system.

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.
These kits are not guaranteed to level your truck, they can be used to do so with success; however, the final outcome is ultimately the buyers responsibility. Though we can provide guidance on the various selections available, we cannot predict the final height or whether or not the truck will sit level. The year, model, vehicle options, current condition of your factory suspension, and product tolerances can all influence the end results. The buyer should have a complete understanding of this before he or she places an order. The buyer should also consider these factors when making their selections. If the customer buys the kit 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
