Question about Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Dodge Dakota Sport, 3.9L 6 cyl, Rare wheel drive. Just tried installing a new KYB Monomax shock and it appears to be to long to fit (bottom clamp screws won't reach the bracket. Do I need longer screws? Or do I have the incorrect size shock. The KYB shock looks like it's an inch longer then the old shock.

Bought a longer screw and cranked that baby up to compress it. Then I threw the old bolts on that are shorter and it is gravy. I ran into a problem taking off the driver side shock though. The top of the old shock I was trying to remove stripped. That screwed me a few hours but I cracked the nut with a nut splitter and popped it off with a chisel and hammer after relentless whackings. New shocks installed in the front and I am good to roll. NUT SPLITTERS are a lifesaver. The amount of torque needed to crank a manual one is rediculous. Save yourself some time and strength and try to find a cheap hydrolic little one.

    How do i prevent the front shock from turning on a 1998 dodge dakota? 4 cylinder, 2 wheel drive. It seems impossible to access the flat on the shock rod!


    There is a socket sold,for the ends of shocks.
    If you can install it,you can hold and tighten the top nut.
    Shocks have been like that for 40 years.
    If your removing it,cut the nut with your cut off wheel.
