Likely uper strut bearings were either not installed properly or were bad and not changed. or could be unrelated and be c/v joint. (doubtful)

99 grand caravan--hear a knocking in front suspension--recently replaced both sway bar links-still knocks--is it most likely lower ball joints? 170k miles--love the van, still goes great


The knocking could be ball joints, control arm bushings, worn strut mounts or struts, missing or damaged spring isolators or a broken coil spring. All of these things are easily diagnosed once the truck is up on a lift , with the exception of the strut, since it cannot be tested unless it is completely removed from the vehicle. However struts should be replaced every 50,000-75,000 miles.

Knocking in front end had linkages replaced but the knocking is still there


replace the front struts AND the turn plates above them, they call those the "strut kits". it houses a bearing plate that turn with the steering wheel.... if the struts are too expensive to replace right now, just have the strut KITS replaced. Very common with 80K+ front wheel drive cars and almost always an area most people look over. good luck

My car started making a knocking type sound when driving. Sounds like it's coming from the front passenger side. What could it be? The front struts were just replaced. Any ideas about this?


outer drive shaft coupling is primary suspect, it knocks on turns ,if its this then leave it till it gets worse ,is the rubber boot intact??

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

Car drives well untrill you hit a bump then it feels like there are no struts, had it checked and was told struts are good....?


If it's a noise you are hearing, then most likely it's the front sway bar links. They are the most common for noises over bumps.

Thanks Jay!
