Front of car poping

I have a 2001 dodge grand caravan and when i go over the smallest bump in the road the front of my car pops, when i first bought the car it didnt do that, but could it be my stuts or my ball joints? Also my front brakes has a hard time stoping and they over heat and grind. And
Ive had my car for a year and a half and i prob changed my front brakes 20 times since then. but nothing seems to help

You need to baseline brakes by replacing all components ..rotors and loaded calipers...hoses need to be replaced also from hard lines to calipers if at all suspect for internal collapse...thats your primary safety issue.. then yes your strut tower bearings likely have failed and / or lower control arm bushing or ball joint....good luck

You must pop up the lower bezel cover first. Lift at the front towards the steering column. Lift up easy from the seat side only, theres 2 clipss that can be broken on the dash side. After poping up slide towards you. Remove the 4 screws holding the round bezel. Remove bezel towards you.Remove 4 screws that hold the instrument cluster. Tilt the cluster to remove. Blubs are PC74.

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!
