Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country
When going over any kind of uneven surface, a "knocking" or "clunking" sound comes from the front suspension (or some steering component?). The car is a 2005 model.
Link arms no good need replacing,easy job,common fault

Pretty common item on those is the upper strut mount & bearing assy. If it sounds like front wheel area. If it feels like it's under your feet, stabilizer bushings. Mounts are about $50 each roughly, but don't try to install yourself unless you have proper compression tools & are experienced at that particular job, as it could get very dangerous.

Same problem. 2002 t&c. 71K miles. Quick-Strut assemblies made it better, but didn't solve. After that, Sway bar bushings! $13 for the pair. Possible to accomplish with 15mm deep socket, 000 steel wool and a pair of vise-grips. Ratcheting wrenches would've made it a one hour job. Driver's side is kind of a pain. Omaha

If you are holding the brake and the problem goes away it is somethng loose on the caliper/braket. I also had the same problem and had five different mechanics including myself try and diagnose it. At first we replaced the upper control arms thinking it was the ball-joints but the noise was still there.I found that the caliper mount of the right side was a little loose so i switched it over to the driver's side and the sound moved with it. We concluded that the problem is in the caliper mounts. Give it a shot. From Spencer Espinola at Old Colony Automotive Technology

I had the same problem and it was the swaybar bushings as well.

I replaced all of the suspension parts, and there is still a noise, that is hard to figure out since everything is new. So I just play the radio a little louder now so the wife doesn't complain.

Here is the solution to the problem and I had the same thing and was fixed after...Replace the brakes. The factory brake or some after market (mostly factory) have the anti rattle clips that are not working like they should after some miles are put on. Here is a link to read about the issue...http://www.complaints.com/2008/october/13/Rattling_anti-rattle_clips_on_car_188747.htm
Please let me know if this helps anyone else. I thought it was control arms, etc... and it was not!!!!
