2002 Dodge Caravan Bushing Sway Bar replacement

This is the second time I have them replaced at dealers. I have 42 000km. Replaced one at 28 000km and second at 40 000km. All under warranty. My concern is when I get over 60 000km, warranty will be over. And how much it will cost to get them replaced? Where are the bushing of sway bar located? I am sure they will wear out and break again in the future. Does anyone have the same problem with their van? The symptom is you hear a noise when go over a bump on front suspension like something is loose. Thank you. I have this same problem. I have replace them once at 42000 miles after having a tire replaced. I am about to replace them for a second time at 70000 miles. We just had the brakes serviced and bought all new tires. Both times the bushings have gone out. It has been following some kind of service work that involves the van being on a rack and the wheels not being supported. The temperature has not been a factor, the first time it happened it was in the middle of the summer and this time the middle of the winter.

    my Grand Caravan needs the Sway bar fixed, and it's costing me almost $400 to get fixed at the dealer. Most of which is just LABOR.

I replaced both sway bar links as well as the bushings this past summer and things are still quiet. I had the same clunking noise as well when going over bumps (Drives you crazy!). Did you try changing the bushings as well? They are $16 for a set of Moog bushing at O'Reilly's.

Sway bar bushing and links

It will allow extra sway which will alter your handling in the near future and in time will do damage to the rest of the suspension.

these have lots of comon problem ie suspenion you have sway bar end link and sway bar bushing problems and the odd ball joint. engine 3.8L head gaskets, water pumps, coolant tubes rotting out, and poor radiators, trans problems lots too many to list. power window problems with switches and motors and window regulators. sory about all the bad news but if its really cheap buy it up. don't forget the cars market for private sales is really good if you are looking to buy right now. a van with 350-400km i wouldn't pay more than $1000 for it cert and etested.good luck

Autoparts store should have them, if not dealer will, and are fairly easy to change. Garage should not charge more than 1/2 hr. labor each.

2003 Dodge Caravan Front end clunk.

Had similar problem with 2003 Dodge GC. Replaced the parts you mention + rack & pinion, then to fix the now noticable whining noise, replaced power steering pump and pulley. Fortunately was under an extended warrentee at 46k miles.
