Re: need a lift
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.

Are the black knobs beside the headlights for the motors spinning when light are on ? I have the same problem with mine, but both dont raise. Gears on the motors are stripped. I manually lifted them have them held up till I can replace.
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.
The flashers are located at the back of the dash panel. To replace the flasher(s), open the glove box door. Depress the top and bottom edges of the box together, lift upwards and remove the box. Reach through the opening and change the flasher(s).
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.
