|My suspension is comprised of a 3.5" Fabtech upper A arm and coil with polyurethane bushings and bump stops. I also have a 2" Daystar coil spacer installed to aid in tire clearance. The body is lifted with a 3" Performance Accesories body lift which didn't included brackets for the front or rear bumpers. I'll go into a detailed description of mounting my front Euro Grille Guard in the "bolt on accessories" section (it's a huge pain in the a$$ with a body lift). The rear suspension is lifted with a 2.5" Fabtech add-a-leaf along with a pair of Beltech lowering shackles for a late model Chevrolet truck. If you flip the shackles in relation to their design, you can achieve as much as 2" of lift on your Dakota (I achieved 2" using the lowest set of holes). Bumps in the road are smoothed out with DOETSCH TECH shocks at all four corners. I'm going to upgrade to remote resevoir pre-runner shocks within a few months. Along with a set of 3" spindles when somebody makes them for the Dakota.
