Question about 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan
Been told the gasket seals are broken both front and back
The knocking noise is just the suspension, it's most likely the bushings on the rear suspension are worn out , this is not very serious , i have driven my vehicle for years with this noise/wear and no problems with normal city driving , maybe if your driving is fast and you go in to the mountains where you have to take corners really fast at a high speed then you need to replace the bushings, if it is the bushings , for normal city driving it's no problem.

What seals ? do you mean wheel bearing seals ? if so this is a problem that will eventually result in bearing failure and could make wheels come off if let go to failure point ,(takes a long time)
the way you wrote this reminded me of a fellow that just got a brand new van and brought it to me in a fluster one day saying it makes horrible banging noises only when he drives it <not sitting still, I pulled it into service bay and put up on rack , when I took hubcaps off to access the wheels I nearly laughed to death !!! seems his Not so funny neighbor had added a handful of gravel to the inside of his hubcaps for a bit of fun with him !!!

SOURCE: front end noise
I`ve had the same problem with my Grand Voyager and the Guest above is correct, it is the sway bar BUT you`d think that it was the bushes, in my case, it was the brackets that encapsulate the bushes over the sway bar. Chrysler in thier infinate wisdom and reducing costs have fitted these brackets with only one nut and bolt at the bottom, the top section of the bracket is just a tongue that wedges the bracket into a lip. If you remove the bracket, you`ll probably see that the tongue is shiny where it`s been wearing away. Replace these two brackets and I think you`ll find you`ve now got a very quiet ride again like these vehicles should be. Ian
