This is our first bolt-in IFS kit using the 1987-1996 Dodge Dakota IFS components. Installs using basic hand tools. You will need to trim up the bottom rail for rack and pinion clearance. If your are using the original engine mount for a stock engine, it can stay in place but you may have to bolt the rack and pinion to the crossmember before installing. If you are not using the stock engine, feel free to trim up the core support crossmember to give you a bit more room to work with. Instructions can be downloaded here.
