I am curious if Dodge made changes to the suspension on the Dakota from aprox 1998 to 2004? I have had a couple 2 wheel drive 1998s, short cab long beds and they drove very 'trucky' and unrefined, bouncy even. Then I have had a couple 2004s; a 2WD and a 4WD and they had a much more solid, smooth comfortable ride, more like a car but solid. Could it be just crappy shocks on my earlier ones or does anybody know if changes were made? My 2004 4WD is the best handling and most solid of all the Dakotas I have had, wondering how I can make my 1998 5.2 5 speed manual handle and feel as solid as that 2004 4WD...any info greatly appreciated.
