Dodge Dakota Repair Kit Available if Front Brake Caliper Bolt Threads Strip
If the threads strip where the front brake caliper mounts to the steering knuckle, a steering knuckle repair kit is available. A new steering knuckle is not normally necessary.
the passenger side steering knuckle om my 1999 dakota has striped also can you tell me where to find a repair kit and what the price will be. - Visitor
Passenger side caliper pin broke off,(lower pin) then stripped out. Busted the brake line where it mounts on caliper. Used the helicoil kit. I have been going down this road for quite a while. I'm on my 3rd helicoil, 8th pin, and 3rd brake line. This design is terrible, and because of it, my steering knuckle is in need of being replaced. Good luck finding one that you don't have to sell your other car to be able to afford. This has not been fixed. - rickwh

Every since I accidently drained the battery last winter and had to get a jump start about 2 weeks later it lost its idle pulling into a parking stall and died, I restarted it but if took foot of gas it died, I went to buy what I was getting came out and it started and held it idle, it ran fine for about 3 weeks after I disconnected the negative cable to reset the computer idle, then it did it again, I took it to a shop and they cleaned the throttle body and replaced the aic, ran fine for a couple weeks died again when taking foot of gas, towed to dealer and it then ran fine no codes sent to computer. I had them replace the tps, went 3 weeks and it died again, now I have replace the negative battery cable, and waiting to see if it dies again. - Roxannp
