Loose and worn suspension,because it wobbles,this say upper bearing plate that is attached to the front struts,when a upperbearing plat is worn it can no longer support the load, It is the load carrier of the vehicle, in return why it went out is mainly a shock absorber, shock absorber are fluid filled charged cartridge and when worn it can no longer absorb road shock,you need a front strut both front and a inspection of the upperbearing plate which is part of the strut.
Those are the symptoms of worn shocks and struts. You should have them replaced by a mechanic. From choosing the low end not so high quality shocks/struts as the replacements, to the high quality OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) shocks/struts it should cost you around $250-$400. Let me please note that some times the shocks do not need replacing but that is at your discretion. Thanks for asking!

Hello tunamae: My name is Roger and I will help. Your 1993 Voyager has struts on the front of the vehicle. In order to change them you will need special strut tool in order to change the strut springs form the old struts to the new ones. Should you need further help please just ask.Please rate the answer you received as this way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya, Roger
I would suspect you have a broken or worn out shock or strut. If it is bouncing in the rear or front or one is broken replace both shocks/struts. They must be replaced in pairs. You may have to replace all four, depending on their condition. If you see a leak they definitely are worn out. Worn shocks/struts will cause your tires to cup and wear out prematurely. They will also cause your vehicle to handle poorly especially in an emergency maneuver. This can be very dangerous so do not neglect worn or broken suspension parts.
That vehicle probably has rear shocks only but there is an easy way to tell a strut has a heavy coil surrounding the shock and is easily recognized. Hopefully it is shocks only - they are alot less expensive and easier to work on - Good Luck
My answer is not going to help you because not only do you need specialized equipment, but you will need special experience to perform this job. You would be required to completely remove the entire front strut assembly from the car. It has to be safety set up on jacks. Once you have the strut assembly out of the car, special spring clamps are needed to compress the heavy spring that is part of the strut. These require very special clamps that compress the springs. If this is not done right, it can conceivably kill a person. Once the spring has been removed, the strut it self must be removed from the strut housing using an impact wrench. Once both sides are changed, the car must be realigned in the front end, otherwise the car will not steer or track properly. Over all, this is a major job. These are not shock absorbers, as you would know them, but are called McPherson struts. If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.
