Here is the new IFS kit for your truck. 1987-1996 Dodge Dakota based kit welds into your stock frame with little modification. Installation should take you a weekend to install!
This requires the removal of your stock suspension and front crossmember, it is a bit tough to get out but once out and your frame rails are cleaned up the new kit installation can begin. We use existing holes to line up the boxing plates. The main body of the kit locks into tabs and slots to take out the location guesswork. Every component you will install is designed to be as fool proof as possible.
You will need a donor front suspension to complete the kit. The 1987 through 1990 Dodge Dakota will be identified by the 5 on 4.5″ rotors and 14mm tie rods. The 1991-1996 Dodge Dakota has a 6 on 4.5″ bolt circle but the rotors are interchangeable, it has 15mm tie rod ends. There are minor differences in the brake calipers, caliper brackets and brake pads. But both have a high degree of interchangeability. Both will accept the 1973-1993 D100/D150/D250 brake rotors, calipers, and caliper brackets. This will give you a full 12″ X 1/4″ brake rotor with your stock 5 on 4.5″/5 on 5 1/2″/8 on 6.5″ bolt circle so you should be able to keep your existing wheels, now that’s a bonus!
