I have a noise in the frontend when driven over rough roads. Dealer looked it over and said it needs shocks. These have a shock/ strut assembly. I dont think i need to replace the whole assembly, just shocks and isolator/rubber pad for the upper end of the assembly. I know the 2008 dakotas ride firm. I have about 48,000 on it. Wondering if anyone has had this problem?

I will give that a try. I notice the noise only at low speeds, of course going over rough roads or pot. Not at high speeds. Ive tried to move the shocks and check for looses bushings, etc. Seem pretty tight.

Just wanted to say thanks, replaced the sway bar bushings and the sway bar links. Found bad one on the passenger side where the noise was coming from. Once i had them out i found the woren one.Thanks again!

I have replaced worn sway bar links and bushings on these. Get a second opinion on the shocks.
Can you hear the noise when jouncing the front end with a couple of helpers? The shocks can be replaced separately if needed.
