Well..... Check the links, if they are OK it could be the struts. Links are common on these. The time you took to post this, you could have known the answer. Grab the link with your hand and if its loose and rattles, its bad.

What is the clunking noise coming from the rear passenger side by the strut?


well, don't know what kind of car you have, but the likeliest candidate is the sway bar end link. They make quite a racket when they are bad. Even on small bumps. it could also be the sway bar bushing too, if it's a bushing it'll be more on larger bumps. if it's a link, it'll be more rattly sounding on smaller bumps.

Clicking noise in front end of car when going over bumps


Probably the front struts your sway bar links can cause the same noise if they are failing but you should have heard or felt somthing while turning regardless of bumps if the sway bar links were bad. Like the other people said start with the struts.

Safety says i need sway bar bushings.what and where are these?


the sway bar is a bar that runs acrossed the front of the van from strut to strut. It is bolted to the cradel and then has links that run from the bar to the strut to increase stability. The sway bar bushings are rubber mounts that hold the bar down to the cradel. The bar runs though the mounts one each side where the bar and the cradel meet. If they are wore out you will normally hear a clucking noise from the front end when you hit bumps. To remove and replace them there is two bolts that hold a steel cap on top of them on each side. Remove the cap from both sides then the rubber mounts will have a split in them so you can get them off the bar. To install them is just the reverse of the removal. Good luck! 4 thumbs up is appeciated if this helps.

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L, hear clunking near right side of vehicle while in drivers seat facing forward. More pronounced over bumps, large or small as if something is not mated properly or...


check the stabilizer bar bushings and the stabilizer bar links. They are very common to wear out and cause clunks over bumps. In an open area and just barely moving turn the wheel to the left and right fast and far enough to get the whole vehicle rocking back and forth. If you hear it under these conditions than it is 99% of the time either the links or the bushings.

I replaced both sway bar links as well as the bushings this past summer and things are still quiet. I had the same clunking noise as well when going over bumps (Drives you crazy!). Did you try changing the bushings as well? They are $16 for a set of Moog bushing at O'Reilly's. http://www.oreillyauto.com/site/c/detail/MOO0/K7406.oap?year=2001&make=Dodge&model=Grand%2BCaravan&vi=1400027&pt=02972&ppt=C0106

2002 clunking problm


Check the macpherson struts to ensure they are not loose.  One way to check is visually in the engine compartment.  Check the top of the struts to ensure the nuts are not loose.  Another is to raise the side of the van where you hear the clunk.  Raise it so the wheel is off the ground.  Grasp and shake the strut to see if it is loose.  The struts should not be loose, but you never know.  As the strut is certainly ivnolved in bumps and rotates when the wheel turns, I would check there since you have already explored the bushings and links.
