Front tires tend to wear faster than old ones. It is usually best to put the new tires on the front drive wheels (traction,steering,braking). Then put the older tires on the back.

Rear Tires: Balding


if it has independent rear suspension then have the suspension rubbers checked and replace if necessary. Next for all wheel alignments it is essential that the rear end is aligned first to stop this tyre wear before the front wheels are aligned . IF you have leaf springs at the rear check for axle alignment and broken centre bolts or worn rubbers at the centre bolt mounts.

Clicking noise down by the front tires.


check your axles, for an open cv boot, this clicking is on straigth or turning, if turming to your rigth you hear noise to be louder on your left then your left axle is bad, do the same to your left and if noise exists then your rigth axle is bad.good luck

1999 Dodge Grand Caravan, 138000 miles. Loud vibration coming from rear at 40+ miles?


This particular vehicle is front wheel drive and there isn't much on the rear axle, so one thing could be the rear wheels need to be balanced or you have a bent rim. Good Luck.

Leaking axle seal on 2003 caravan


You may have a bad pinon bearing in the differential -- that's where the drive-shaft attaches to.If that's the case a good used tansaxle will be cheaper.
Is there a whining noise when driving.
Also check all moter mounts make sure they are not torn / broken hence throughing the shaft to pinnon alignment off.

Check your tires and wheels. You may have a out of balance tire or a bent wheel. If it's not that type of vibration check your motor mounts because if the mount at the rear of the firewall between the motor and trans is broken your experiencing a cv axle vibration

How to remove rear brakes on 2001 dodge caravan


Things You'll Need:
  • Floor jack Jack stand Wheel chock 1/2-inch drive breaking bar 1/2-inch drive socket set 1/2-inch drive ratchet C-clamp Bungee cord Flathead screwdriver Ball peen hammer Handheld portable propane torch (optional) Medium grade sand paper or emery cloth Anti-seize lubricant.
STEPS TO REPLACE REAR BRAKES
  1. Park the Dodge Caravan on a level paved or concrete surface.2
  2. Place a wheel chock in front of one of the front tires.3
  3. Break the lug nuts loose on the reartires.4
  4. Lift one side of the rear axle of theCaravan using the floor jack and place a jack stand under the rear axle.5
  5. Remove the lug nuts and tire.6
  6. Remove the caliper bolts using the ratchet and a socket. Remove the pads from the caliper starting with the outboard pad and pry it from the caliper housing with a flathead screwdriver. Remove the inboard pad and compress the piston of the caliper in using the C-clamp. Replace the pads. Hang the caliper to the frame using the bungee cord.
  7. Remove the caliper anchor bolts using the ratchet and a socket.8
  8. Remove any retaining rings on the hub of the rotor around the studs. Pry them off with the screwdriver and discard them. You will not need them for reinstallation.
  9. Strike the fin of the rotor on the edge using the ball peen hammer. Spin the rotor and strike it often and from the inside of the tire well moving out. Use as much force as necessary. If the rotor still does not want to come off (rare cases) light up the portable propane torch and apply a liberal amount of heat to the hub of rotor around the lug studs and strike with the hammer to shock it from the hub.0Sand down the hub facing with a medium grade sandpaper or emery cloth once the rotor has been removed and the hub has cooled down if you had to use the torch. Sand down the edges of the hub as well.
  10. Apply a light coat of anti-seize lubricant to the edge of the hub and this will help in the future when the rotor needs to be removed again for whatever reason.
  11. Replace the parts in reverse procedure and repeat the steps for the other side.

just as your mechanic said it is the overrunning clutch case and you might be able to save it by changing the fluid in it and adding an additive we alway use the limited slip additive made for GM and it has gone away within 100 mile of driving. what this clutch does is links the front to the rear axel and if your tires do not match in size (overall diameter) this clutch has to work over time. and wil ruin this clutch . so check your tires first and hope the additive will save your clutches. good luck
