  1. Creaking noise when turning

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    My 2013 has a hundred and sixty thousand miles on it. It has started making a creaking noise that normally doesn't start until I've been driving the car for a number of hours. When I turn the wheel it makes a series of ticks coming from the left front suspension. There is some kind of a bar, I...

    Suspension, Brakes, Steering, Tires & Wheels
    I had lots of work done on my van yesterday. main reason why i went was i was hearing scrapping and grinding sounds coming from the front tires. They fixed a bunch of stuff.

  4. Uneven front tire wear

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Anyone have similar experience with right front (passenger side) tire wearing prematurely on outside edge? One shop told me there were NO specs for camber alignment published by the factory! What gives with this???
  5. Front End Noise - Give it a listen

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Linked is an audio clip from my 2003 Caravan with 154,000 km on the odometer. Front end noise has gotten louder over the last few weeks. Starts at speeds over 30 km/hr. Tires, calipers, pads, rotors and stabilizer bushings are good. Rotating tires makes no difference. It could be a bearing...
  6. Front End Noise

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    2003 Caravan SE w/156,000 km on the clock. The last few months everyone has been complaining about how loud my Caravan is. I have not been able to pin down the source but would describe it as a low level thumping which speeds up and slows down with vehicle speed. Doesn't make any difference if...
  7. Clunk/noise when straightening tires/steering wheel

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Ok, I've seen a lot of threads on clunks and noises in the front end. But I can't quite find one with what I'm hearing/feeling and seeing. I have an '01 T&C with the 3.8L. What I am hearing/feeling is a clunk/thump in the right-front, as the steering wheel straightens out after turning...

    3.3L V6 Tech Talk
    I have a clunking noise coming from my front end when I hit large bumps and slow and high speeds. It comes from either the left or right side, depending on which tire hits the bump. I changed the struts. The mechanic says everything seems ok and that I should just turn up the radio. Any ideas?
