Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
Had new links put on still clunks
I had the same problem with my 2002 Town and Country Limited. I took it to the mechanic and had the sway bar links and ball joints replaced and still had the same clunking noise when going over bumps at low speeds. The van sounded great on the highway, but country roads were horrible. I was about to replace the struts and pay another 700 dollars when i read somewhere that the sway bar bushings could wear and cause the noise. I took it to the mechanic and he said absolutely not it would be a waste of money. Being the stubborn guy I am, I went to NAPA and bought the two bushings for 12 dollars and replaced them myself in an hour. I took the van for a test ride and the noise is completely gone. Please ignore your mechanic and replace the bushings ASAP! Pretty cheap try even if it doesn't work.

I had to replace my front sway bar 'D' mount bushings 3 times on the 2002 T&C Limited (every 40K). If the clunk you are hearing is from a one wheel bump or a sharp turn (left or right, does not matter) it may be the swaybar bushings. If you hear it when you go over a 2 wheel bump (eg: speed braker), it may be something else.

My "clunk" noise was fixed by replacing sway bar bushings - easy fix and the expensive parts were only $13!

I replaced my front end struts because they were noisy; after they were noisy in another completely different and annoying way, but still terribly noisy. They were warrantied 'out', and a tie rod changed and the noise is gone.

How many miles? I suspect the issue may be the shocks, the factory shocks wear out very quickly on these vans.
