Took the Dakota to the shop to have the front end looked at, and.... pretty much the entire front end needs to be redone. Tie rod ends, control arms, Dad doesn’t remember the rest..... (I took a nap when we got home, and we told them to call him). The price? $667! The TRUCK WAS $1400!
I still love the truck, and it is a joy to drive. Just, ouch. Especially at 17.
