Question about Dodge Caravan
You may have worn inner CV axle shaft joints. When these joints wear they will cause a side to side movement of the front of the chassis that matches thespeed of the wheel revolutions. Generally the movement/shaking will cease or lessen greatly when coasting but return as soon as power is applied again to the transmission. The movement will also be more severe when accelerating harder and less severe when slowly accelerating. I've replaced several shaft over the years for this type of problem and usually replace both shafts at the same time as they are almost always equally worn. The boot that surrounds the joint may or may not be good yet and often I find that even though the joint and boot appear good from the outside the joint is nonetheless worn out. Since it looks like you've had most of the other things checked out I'd take a closer look at the CV axles as it's a pretty common problem in my area. Good luck and hope this helps!
