EL122R-P - Old Man Emu Dakar Rear Leaf Springs with Bushings (98-04 Tacoma)

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. Bushings and U-Bolts not included
