I have a 1999 Dodge Dakota SLT 2WD. I have seen this topic covered in previous posts over the years but have never seen a definitive answer. My question is this: are the upper control arms for the 1999 2WD and 4WD drive the same? I have seen some saying yes and some saying definitely so. I tend to I believe they are for no other reason than you cannot find the upper control arm for 2WD anywhere. I have checked numerous parts websites, called company tech reps and go to auto parts and everyone says they do not carry upper control arms for the 2WD. Why would nobody carry the 2WD part but everyone has multiple 4WD. And before people weigh in why don't I just replace the bushings or the ball joint, etc. etc. I have my reasons and don't want to get into that discussion. All I want to know is whether someone has actually replace the upper control arms on a 1999 2WD Dakota SLT and where did they get the parts. Thank you.
