  1. 05 Grand Caravan strut reviews

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi folks. I bought some Monroe quickstruts from Rock Auto. After 2 years my front has sagged 1 3/4" low from factory spec. My options are buy another set and install them and return the old defective ones for a refund. Or buy another brand. Rock Auto sells Gabriel and KYB also. I know both...
  2. 2009 Grand Caravan with tow package

    Suspension, Brakes, Steering, Tires & Wheels
    I replaced my nivomat rear shocks and now my front end feels like it is bottoming out when I go over bumps. I think I need new struts. I looked on Rockauto for front struts and they all say not for nivomat or load leveling. I have 150,000 miles on my van. Any suggestions? I want the quick...
  3. 97 DGC trouble with front suspension - strut mounts

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I've rebuilt the front suspension. I replaced all of the control arm bushings, the ball joints, outer tie rod ends, sway bar bushings, sway bar end links, and put new struts in - KYB GR2s (I think). My DGC is a Sport model, so it has the heavier springs. When I serviced the struts, the only...
  4. Rattling sound over bumps but struts are good

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    I've noticed lately when I go over bumpy roads I hear this rattling sound that's seems to come from the rear . I thought maybe my struts were going out. I just had a mechanic look at van and he said struts and everything else seem fine. He thought the sound was coming from inside the van. Now I...
  5. air shocks instead of struts.

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I wish i could find a reasonably priced air shock to replace the struts on the front.I would like to keep the pans as high as possible.So far i am just super careful.Much of my adventures are on dirt roads.I have rubber coil spring spacers in now to make up for the saggy springs.It works pretty...

  7. Do I Need to Grease New End Links? Load on Car for Struts?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hey everyone, I plan on doing a suspension upgrade (struts, sway bar bushings, endlinks, and shocks). So my end links just came in and I see they came with zerk fittings (not installed on the end links). I have a few questions in regards to this; Is there grease inside of the end links...

  9. Noise after replacing front struts and sway bar links

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I recently installed Monroe quickstruts and swaybar links on 2007 T&C 3.8 FWD. For the first 150 miles, there were no issues. Now, there is a loud clunking sound in the front end when driving over bumps and it seems to be getting progressively louder. I jacked it up tonight, swaybar links and...
  10. 2002 DGC Sport Replacement Shock/Strut Recommendations

    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...
  11. 3rd Generation Van? I'd check this out...

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    My 2000 Town & Country Limited has been making a terrible creaking/popping noise everytime I turn the steering wheel at a slow speed or stop. Two different shops told me I had a bad power steering rack, which I believed because it seemed to correlate directly with the steering, and I could feel...
