First of all, lets look at the obvious. When installing a tire that large the tendency of the tire is to follow every crack and crevice in the road. By raising it up you totally change the steering geometry. This being said, it may still not be the problem. I have run tall tire with lift kits for years. Take a look at the steering box where it mounts to the frame. Larger tires have a tendency to put more pressure on the steering gear box. It can range from causing the mounting bolts to loosen to causing small cracks in the frame. If the steering gear box moves even in the slightest it will be practically impossible to hold in the road. Another possibility is worn piston seals inside the steering gear box. When they leak, or bypass, the gear box becomes sluggish and you will find yourself chasing it all over the place. Ed
The Dakota's have alway had weak steering boxes and even some problems with the steering shaft. Look up Dodge Dakota websites. You need to find a good garage to inspect and repair your truck. There's so many problems with Dakota's and Durango's. The control arm bushings are probably bad too. Lift kits increase the strain on the suspension and steering. I would just sell it.
hi, i always recommend using a lift kit for safety but, you can use a hydraulic floor jack to lift as well. they are really strong and sturdy. i would recommend using one hydraulic floor jack on each axle.
I am pretty sure that there is a lift kit available for a 95 dakota. There are a few ways to lift the body of the vehicle. I know a few people who have done it with hockey pucks. Drill holes through the center of the hockey pucks and place them in the body mounts. However, if you want buy a real lift kit, there are several sites that sell lift kits. I recently put a 9" suspension lift on a 1977 F-150. Most companys that make the kits offer more for newer vehicles.
I am not sure if I am allowed to post other websites, however, I did search for a lift for a 95 dakota and found one right away. There are three types of lifts that you can do. One is very limited but you can get the truck taller by putting bigger tires on it. Doing this will give you less clearance between the top of the tire and the fender well. There are also body lifts and suspension lifts. Body lifts are less expensive as there are less components to install. Suspension lifts are much more expensive but it is what I would reccomend for a larger lift. For a couple inches I would go with the body lift. For anything over 2 to 3 inches I would reccomend a suspension lift. If you can find a body lift kit for a 95 dakota 4x4, then you can use it on a 2 wheel drive as well.
Sounds like you have idle air contol problem,sounds like you need your intake cleaned .Go to your local parts store and see if they have 3 step intake cleaning kit. 3M makes a kit and so does valvoline. It should contain a can of Throttle body cleaner a bottle of intake cleaner and a bottle of fuel injector cleaner that you will have to add to your fuel tank. Or you can go to your local valvoline express lube and they can perform this service for around $50.
