Question about 2002 Dodge Caravan
Every time van goes over a bump or a small hole there is a slight knocking noise.
I`ve had the same problem with my Grand Voyager and the Guest above is correct, it is the sway bar BUT you`d think that it was the bushes, in my case, it was the brackets that encapsulate the bushes over the sway bar. Chrysler in thier infinate wisdom and reducing costs have fitted these brackets with only one nut and bolt at the bottom, the top section of the bracket is just a tongue that wedges the bracket into a lip. If you remove the bracket, you`ll probably see that the tongue is shiny where it`s been wearing away. Replace these two brackets and I think you`ll find you`ve now got a very quiet ride again like these vehicles should be. Ian

Have you looked at the sway bar link and control arm. I had this problem in my 1966 Grand Voyager and I have it now in my 02 Caravan. In the 96 it was the sway bar links and control arm etc. It cost me about 100.00 CAD for both sides including brake pads. (Since everything was being taken apart anyway, for 25.0CAD why not?) I would look at that. Talk to someone in your autoparts counter if you DIY and they should be able to help you get all the parts you need and if you take it to the dealer/garage tell them you believe it to be sway bar links etc and see what they say.

It could be a multitude of things but i would look at the front and rear shocks or struts
