2005 thumping/rattle front end.

I have Dodge Caravan 2005. Go over not so smooth road or any bump, the front end rattles or thumps. Sounds like strut mount? If so how much to repair?

450-$60 per upper strut mount at autozone, and probably 1hr. to 1-1/2 hrs.per side to replace it. Depending on your labor rate in your area. Would recommend alignment after too. Usually if your going to do one, do the other too, because it won't be too far behind the first one to clunk, and then you end up paying for another alignment too. Here's a site that may help, if not exactly what your getting done, pick closest for rough estimate, just add, or subtract parts/labor your not, or are getting done. ( repairpal.com )

Thumping


check the driver side (strut shock) mount. you'll have to open the hood and it should be up in the top left corner of the engine bay. sometimes they rust out and the strut will bounce freely in the mount. also check to see if struts are shot. hope it helps!

Front suspension noise-dull rattle-thumping sound,bumpy roads


look at the front lower engine mount. I had similar noise which has been driving me nuts, thought may be thesway bar links, put it on friends hoist and saw that the front engine mount (mounted to bottom of lower radiator support) was cracked and the rubber bushing inside very worn with pieces missing. odd thing is that reving, or putting into gear never caused it to make a noise, just certain bumps. I ordered part from Autozone,hopefully it gets here before the holiday week end is over.
Good luck

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. Thunking, clunking under the front half of car. Hard to localize or lateralize. Maybe more driver side. Heard with small bumps and road undulations. Big bumps may not cause...


You may have bad CV joints located just behind the brake rotors and at the end of the axles. Check for bad wheel bearings while you are there. Hope this helps!

Front stabilizer/sway bar bushings sound worn. I had same, on my 91'. Felt like someone was thumping the floor under my feet sometimes. I managed to get away with spinning the outer ones at control arms, but replaced ones in middle at frame.

Seeing how obviously I can't hear what your hearing, I'll say this much, there's a good chance your hearing the upper strut bearing or bearings starting to get worn, pretty common problem with caravans, but just to be on the safe side, have front end checked out for your own & everyone else's safety, just in case. Should only take 10 min. or so, for piece of mind.
