Check to see if the strut tower bolts are fastened to manufactures recommended torque specifications. Perhaps one of the bolts is broken and or the spring isnt seated properly due to a broken part within the strut assembly or simply because the tower bolts have loosened or werent properly torqued. Did you have the strut replaced or any other service done with the brakes or hubs or connecting rods? Maybe a part wasnt reconnected or properly repaired, or the spring has a crack in it which I would find highly unlikely if it rides fine down the road. Get a free quote from a reputable certified liscensed shop. At least it will be free and then you can decide were to go from there.

Astro van won't shift into gear


My van wouldn't shift from park into gear in the parking lot at work. I had to have it towed. They replace the switch that is spring-loaded to the brake pedal. When you press down on the pedal, that switch pops out and allows you to shift gears. In this case, the spring didn't release so the van wouldn't shift out of park. They replaced the part but I still had the same problem (did they really replace it?). I took the part out, sprayed with WD40 and it's been working great for years.

check with your local auto parts store. They should be able to get you a shock called a load leveler. It will be a shock that has a coil on it. I have installed several of these on astro and safari vans to help with trailer towing. I know Monroe makes these and are the better shock manufacturer in my opinion.

They will look simular like this

Noise right front wheel sounds like wheel bearing, 1998 Dodge 3500 Van


try steering the the car to the right and the left while driving down the road. listen for the noise to get louder or quieter as you steer the car. which ever direction you steer and it gets louder it will be the bearing on the other side. for example if you turn right and it gets louder its the left bearing because you have just shifted the vechical weight to the left side by turning right. and also in that same situation the bearing would get quieter because you have just unloaded the left bearing and put the weight to the right side.

Front End Noise, Chev Cavalier


It sounds like you have a bad c v or constant velocity joint. Look under the car next to the wheel look for a rubber accordian type unit, if the rubber is torn or lose the grease has escaped and damaged the joint. You can replace it yourself, but if your not mechanically inclined would say take it to a shop.
