  1. Introduce Yourself and Your Minivan
    I recently purchased a 2019 GC GT from a local dealer. It was a prior rental car with 39k miles. On the test drive I noticed a slight thumping noise at low speeds (less than 40 mph), but wasn't concerned as it was cold and car had been sitting on the lot for quite a while. After taking...
  2. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    My dad always put booster shocks on his towing vehicles. I was surprised when I discovered that they were available for my non-towing-package 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan. And since I needed new shocks anyway, I decided to give them a try. This is the install and results.

    Hi Everyone, I have founds lots of useful information on the Nivomat rear suspension on the forums but I still have a few questions. I recently bought an 05 T&C Limited because I loved driving my dad's 04 Grand Caravan. The Chrysler though doesn't have the nice "forward leaning" stance of the...
  4. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Just bought a 2012 T&C with 30K miles (former Chrysler executive car so in like new condition, always serviced at dealer with no suspension part changes since put in service). Came from a '03 T&C which had a bad front end crunching sound but only intermittently when in cold weather (when both...

    Got talked into an alignment at [national chain beginning w/ letter S] and since I never remembered changing the shocks & struts I figured what the heck. (the shocks were like $35) I checked with another national chain and they were saying hundreds cause the 4 wheel drive T&C LXi needed self...
  7. 5th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Hey guys, I just bought my van last week, White 2009 Touring w/ 3.8L, and I'm brand new to the group . . . my question is regarding the shocks on this thing. I know that you had to get the towing prep package to get the "load leveling shocks" (I did not, nearly impossible to find on a used log)...
  8. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I do not want to pay $200 a shock to replace the Nivomats (of which one has gone bad) on my '02 which is now mainly my commuter/tool hauler (not the family out-on-the-town car anymore). I have seen discussions about using the Monroe coil over shocks, but according to the Advance Auto Parts...
  9. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hello everyone. I have a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport with about 99,000 miles on it that currently rides on the original, factory suspension. When I bought the car, it was only a year old and had less than 12,000 miles on it. Despite the low mileage, the ride was (and still is) horrible...
