    not so bad for all that then. I guess I'm lucky that all I needed to buy was spindles and blocks for my truck.

    you chevy and ford owners can spend less on your lift and drop kits because there a dime a dozen to everyone, dodge comes 3rd in the aftermarket world so of course its gonna cost more, but for my drop on my 97 dakota it cost me 350 cdn, for 2 inch springs and 3 inch blocks, but i just spend another 500 cdn on 3 inch a arms, and 5 inch shackle hanger kit, and a custom 6 inch cnotch kit, so total will be 5/5 drop with maybe a 1 inch block to bring it to a 5/6

    Lift kits for those Dakotas are $$$ too. There are only about 2 companies making them too.
