Upgrade the rear suspension

I would like to replace the coil springs on my 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan. When hauling a trailer the rear end is not stiff enough for the load.

I would recommend you replace the factory units with variable rate springs. They will not give the harsh ride associated with overall stiff springs but will add control while towing. Also, check that shocks are good.

Rear suspension upgrade


Heavy hauling. Up grade the springs. Over load springs. But your differential and transmission will take the hit from this over time.

I also had the same problem with my 2008 grand caravan. It turned out to be a bad ground wire. A real difficult thing to find. You just might want to replace all of the wires or better still replace the entire harness it will save you a lot of trouble

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.

Can i ask how to upgrade the rear suspension to


Having a bit of trouble understanding your post but if you need to stiffen up the rear suspension I'd recommend using either coil-over shocks or air shocks back there. (make sure you have enough room for them though.
Springs loose some of their weight carrying ability as they get older. Possible you need to replace them as well. A good upgrade for springs are "cargo coils" which are a variable rate spring.

Rear springs sound weak. Take it to a spring shop, they are usually pretty fast & cheaper than dealer, but if price sounds too high, head out for a second opinion. Most brake and alignment shops can do it too.

2004 town car signature ride is rough


Do you still have the air ride on your Town Car? You may want to look into replacing it with one of Strutmasters non air conversion kits. The coil spring conversion gives you the support you need in the rear with out the sagging down from the air. Great prices and great service, check out Strutmasters.com.
