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.

My vehicle has 120,000 miles. Now I am getting a front shimmy at low speed, 20-30 mph. Possible problems?


Could be several things, including a bad tire or bent rim.
A shimmy usually starts after you hit a bump, which would point to a loose tie rod end or ball joint instead of the tire/rim.

2001 dodge ram is shaking or hops when hitting a bump or turning. front tierod leaking, thought it was the shocks???what could it be?


Sound like more loose front end parts. I would get the truck to an alignment shop and have them look the front end over and give you an estimate for repairs.

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!

Problem for Dodge 2005 Grand Caravan I hear a clanking sound when I go over a bump


A few simple things to look for.A loose or missing exhaust pipe bracket or mount.Follow the exhaust along from under the car giving it a firm,sharp push upwards.This may show up a problem.Shock absorber mounts.Sometimes the small rubber bush in the ends of them break up and fall away.A visual inspection with a torch may find a problem.Hope this helps you

Clunking noise in the front right when coming to a stop


first off the alt. belt is too tight. loosen it. should go away. and if its a clunk in the frount end i would guess it is your struts or bushings or both.

2005 thumping/rattle front end.


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 )
