That was a common problem on Windstars. It is frequently caused by binding in the tie rod end. It presents as either a clunk or something akin to a dot matrix printer. It rarely shows up as a problem on a normal inspection of the tie rod but can cause problems later.

Have your front end checked for worn parts, ball joints, bushings, tie rod ends, you definitely need a front end alignment.

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in


Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

Clunking noise going over bumps front end


Could be strut mounts or possibly a CV joint.
A mechanic could determine which it is and whether or not it needs replacing or tightening.
Hope this helps.
