  1. Video: Monroe Load Adjusting Shocks - Install and Results

    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.
  2. Leaf Springs and Nivomat Shocks

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...

    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...
  6. How to find the Load Leveling Shocks for a 5th gen

    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)...
  7. Something besides Nivomats?

    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...

    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...
