I put my crabgrass killer down 2 weeks ago. I don't remember the name of it as it was just labeled a crabgrass preventer that I use every year. You will need a broadleaf killer also.

I don't believe there is one chemical for both.

I am going to guessand say you have not actualy seen any crabgrass yet in your lawn being that soil temps havent been warm enough for it to germinate. I would put down a crabgrass preventer now and water it in. Then follow it with a broadleaf herbicide for the dandilions.

If you do not want to go with the preemergent herbicide, when you do actualy see crabgrass start to germinate, you can spray a post emergent herbicide. A product called Momentum Q worked great to wipe out crabgrass and broadleaf weeds for me last year but is kinda pricey.
