  1. Brake Upgrade

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I just installed 4th gen spindles and brakes on my 3rd gen. Currently, I am using the rotors, pads, and calipers I pulled out of the junkyard having only rebuilt the calipers, but I plan on replacing these components soon. Ive been looking around to see if anything else might swap on, and I see...
  2. 2010 T&C - Intermittent right front brake problem

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I have a 2010 Town and Country, 4.0L SFI SOHC 6cyl, ~100,000 miles. Periodically, the right front brake will seem to drag while at highway speeds. It does overheat (to the point of smoking), and requires you to stop the vehicle and let it cool down. It will return to normal and not repeat the...
  3. Suspension Upgrade Time

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    So after planning this for several years, I finally started buying parts today to completely replace the suspension on my 1997 Grand Voyager. The $10 ball joints I installed years back are starting to fail, which is what made me finally get this started. Most of the suspension is still original...
  4. Replace Master Cylinder and Brake Booster At Same Time?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My 2005 Town and Country van has over 250,000 miles on it. Yesterday, when I went to back it out of the driveway, I stepped on the brake pedal, heard a pop, and the brake pedal went to the floor. None of the lines going to any of the calipers are leaking. I looked near the master cylinder and...
  5. MonsterBrakes Canada - Cross Drilled Rotors

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Just a heads up. ebay seller MonsterBrakes in Canada If you buy cross drilled rotors from them, they are NOT like the picture. There are only half the holes cross drilled as the picture suggests. I've not seen cross drilled rotors with so few holes drilled. I guess they save money that way...
  6. ESP/BAS w/Faulty Switch codes. Help!

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Hi all. I've been lurking here on and off since buying a used 08 Grand Caravan SXT 3.8 back in June of this year. On the whole I'm fairly happy (we were looking at T&C's but ended up having to make a fast decision to buy something in one afternoon after our Olds Silhouette died 2 days before a...

    Make me an offer for these. They worked fine, I upgraded to the HD calipers (yea for 17" rims!) and couldn't use these for the core. Prefer local pickup near Waukesha, WI.

  11. How Do You Retract Rear Brake Pistons?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My vehicle is a 2005 Town and Country. Is the piston used in the rear caliper the type that needs to be both rotated and compressed in order to be retracted? Or is it the "standard" style piston that just needs to be compressed with a C-clamp? Thanks in advance for your help.
  12. 97 Grand Voyager - Rear Brake Line Failure

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    My 97 GV rear brake line went out today during a hard brake. After the adventure of getting it home, I took a look at it. It appears to be from above the gas tank (that I just filled of course). The lines are completely corroded. What is the best source for replacements - any pre-bent options?
  13. 2010 T&C Brake\Turn Light Issues

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    We have a 2010 T&C 3.8L that we bought used about 8 months ago. She has 41000 miles on her. Yesterday my wife told me the EVIC (I think that's right) reported Rear Right Turn Signal Out. I picked up a couple of bulbs and planned to replace today. Today noticed I needed a T30 bit to swap the...
  14. '08 T&C Rear Brake Bleeding

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I made a huge mistake while changing rear pads. I got in a hurry and spun the caliper piston out instead of in on the rear passenger side. Some fluid leaked out but I got the piston turned back into the caliper. The brake pedal is very spongey, any advice on bleeding the brakes would be...
  15. Brake Light Stay On

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    For some reason when I turn on the headlights the brake lights stay on. When the headlights are off the brake lights go on/off as normal. All the other lights work fine (turn signals, etc.) except the passenger backup light which I need to check the bulb. Could a bad bulb be causing this? Thanks...
  16. Bending new Brake Lines?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    It seems the brake lines on our '97 Van have to be replaced? I'm wondering how hard bending new lines are on these vans? It looks like you need to remove the gas tank to do 2 lines on the left side. Is this possible without a lift? Could a novice do this?
