Chys. had a recall about a year a go or so on dakotas and durangos to fix that problem, as my wifes 2001 durango she got a recall notice about it in the mail, she was told to take it to a dealer and have it fixed for free whitch she did, and just before that she got one about the upper ball joints to be replaced, and the dealer did that to, free of charge. I don't know if there is a time limit on that or not but it Might be worth looking into.
