    going over any small bump in the road creates far more noise than expected. a clunking sound emanatesfrom the front end.

Im not saying this is a definite answer, but since I worked at a dealer 90% of these cars had an issue with the lower control arm. it is exspensive but by simply haveing a person watch your tire movment as you shift from fwd. to rev. with your foot on the brake you will see the tire actually move back and forth when you shift it.

2002 chrysler mini van front end noisy .when you hit a bump.what


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.

Clunk noise from front left suspension


My guess is a strut bushing/bearing, but have your front end checked out by good shop to make sure it isn't something else more dangerous.
