Has anyone looked closely at the Dakota rear axle as it is sprung over. Would this fit into a Durango? (axle and leaf srpings) What (if any) would be the amount of lift?

They axle are basically identical except for the spring perches being on top of the axle instead of being on bottom. If you swapped them and made your axle spring over in the rear, it would net you about 5 inches of lift in the rear. So you will need to do something in the front to mach the lift if you plan on going that route. I am not 100% sure, but I believe the Dakota and Durango spring pads line up so no real issue there (best to measure and check though first). You can also take a Dakota axle and weld on new perches on the bottom to retain your spring under axle configuration.
