Hello guys! This is the first forum I've ever joined. From what I've seen so far it seems that this was the best one for Dakota lovers. I have a 4 door 2wd 2000 Dakota with a 4.7. I bought it used and it came with a Flowmaster and a 3 inch Fabtec lift. It also has a sunroof, which I found out later was not factory. Anyhow, I love this truck! In about a week or two I'm going to be replacing the steering components. I need new front hubs, a new rack & pinion, outter tie rod ends, and new shocks. My question to you guys is, what aftermarket brands are best recommended by most Dakota owners? It's a daily driver that we sometimes take runs out to Vegas in, nothing to crazy but, if I'm gonna do it, I wanna do it with parts that are more dependable/durable. I don't mind spending a little more for the peace of mind. Also, if you know of something else I should swap out while I'm doing this, I'd appreciate your input. Thanks for taking the time and I'm really looking forward to hearing back and swapping stories in here! Thanks again!
