Question about Cars & Trucks
2002 caravan. Clunk when going into reverse and drive (park-reverse or drive, reverse - drive, drive - reverse).Can't tell if it's in trans. or hub. Never made the noise before work was completed. Parts changed: -rack & pinion/tie rod ends -lower ball joints -Front brakes -Sway bar links & bushings -trans. fluid/filter -wheel bearings(hub assy.) Please help!
I would say either you have bad cv joints
or they may have beeb damaged some with
all that other work
The question you should ask yourself & the shop
is why is it there now & not before all that work.
Were all transaxle & motor mounts bad & missed as well
or the cradle moved for some reason
You had it Wheel Alignment I hope
You can't do a rack & not alignment

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.
