No 3.3 in a Dakota, I think you mean 3.9.....

Check autolibrary.org in my signature file for the R&R on the rack and pinion...they should have it there.

Replace the outer tie rods at the same time. Get a good quality rebuilt unit such as a Mopar or Moog or other reliable brand name. Get an alignment at once after completing the job.
