Take it to the dealer. the steering shaft needs to be replaced with a larger one, dealer should cover cost if it is still under warrenty.

If you have a 4X4, it most likely going to be the CV joints and will need to be replaced. Turn the wheel to the Left and look at the condition of the left CV joint and then turn the wheel to the right and look at the condition of the CV joint on the right side of the truck. Look for any damages, and grease leaking due to wear and tear of the CV joint boots.

Constant velocity joints (CV) are worn my friend, may need driveshafts if the CV's are not removeable though they usually are detachable on most cars.

Some have inner and outer ones, and 4x4's can have 8 cv's altogether though it will be the front ones.

Knocking in the glove box


You most likely have a bad HVAC blend door actuator. When they fail, the gears over run themselves and give you that kind of noise. What you can do is remove the glove box liner and see if you can get your hand onto the actuator, and you should be able to feel the clicking through the body if that is where it's coming from.

New rear suspension and they make noise


Caravans had a real issue with rear suspension noises, and one of the suggestions from Dodge was the addition of a spacer washer at the bottom shock mount to space it a little farther away from the axle housing. I have seen many new shocks that "knocked" right out of the box new. It is possible one of the new ones is defective

I ve change idler. Arms pitman shocks. Upper ball joints.but still hearing a loud knocking noise in the front near the gear box.


They had a issue with the steering column slip-shaft making noise. You can tell if thats the source of the noise by grabing the shaft above the steering box and moving sideways-back and forth, if you can hear it rattleing and feels loose it's most likely the cause. The only way to stop it is to replace the shaft with a up-graded part from GM.
This drove everybody crazy for a while untill they found the problem and redesigned the shaft.

A jolt from the rear of the car when the auto gear box changes in low gear and a noise from the near side rear


jolt from the rear of the car when the auto gear box changes in low gear is a common fault in the older s types. most of the time is a sign of the gear box on its way out. is worth checking gear box oil level and oil quality though. noise from near side rear would probably be the damper rose joint which make a knocking noise when they wear.

Sounds like a brake caliper hanging up. Check the slides to see that they're smooth working. Jack the right side up & make sure the front wheel turns fairly easy. If it's dragging alot then the caliper slide is fubar or the brake hose is collapsed internaly. Replace the hose if that's the case.
