Are we talking 4X4? If so, check the axle u joints/ ball joints. Pretty common problem on Dakotas...You can jack the front end up and spin the wheel. Now, turn the wheel while it is jacked up and try to spin it. It will probably be hard to turn. you can also grab the axle shaft near the u-joint and twist back and forth and pull up and down side to side. If there is any play the joint is bad. Not too hard to replace.
