You said that you knew a guy that had a lot of CV joint. I was wondering if you new his number, e-mail, or if he has a web site and its address.

yooperguy_66, the man I got my CV joints from is Kevin Yutani, in Ocala, Florida, his company is called "Constant Velocity of Ocala", and he has an Internet site at http://www.cvaxles.com/index.html
He is very friendly and helpful and will talk you through your problems on the phone. If you want to get on his good side and if you have ever been in the Army (especially if you were a parachutist), mention that!
Hope this helps. Tom in Bismarck, North Dakota (was in Ireland when Kevin helped me).
#116 of 120 BROKEN LOWER CONTROL ARM BRACKET
Oct 22, 2010 (4:57 pm)
2001 Dakota R/T, heard clunking noise on hard turning and discovered the right side forward lower control arm support bracket broken. This is the metal peice that is welded to the frame that holds the control arm. How do you fix this? Can you get a new bracket and weld it back on? Do you make one and weld it on? You can't just replace the whole frame? The upper and lower ball joints were replaced and the car was aligned a couple of weeks ago with no issues.

I think there is a sticker in the glove box with the info regarding the rear size and maybe if it had the slip differential. I sold my 2001 at the end of 2011, wish I could help some more.

My 01 Dodge Dakota broke it's lower control arm leading bracket. No off-roading ever...driven gently...no advance warning. Chrysler corp. denies any problems with that model year. Can't get local shops to respond. I'd sure like to know what jt8man did to fix his same problem. Any help appreciated.
