Its a rattle and bump on the right side of the vehicle that just started 7/23/11 due to my wife hitting something she doesnt know, wow but none the less I got a problem. I dont know if its a strut or sway bar or something worse. I have heard noise before this incedent when I turn the wheels from left to right like a clunking noise. Please HELP. Thanks

    It could be many things, unfortunately and without hearing the noise first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests or be able to drive the car, its hard to say what the source of the noise may be. Is there any unusual tire wear after the object was struck, it may be suttle just light feathering on the edge of the tires if so have an alignment done and ask them if they see any damage, I've seen the older Grand Caravan give a rattling sound when they go over any uneven road surface if the front sway bar end links go bad. Disconnect it and tie it out of the way and see if the noise goes away, if so you've found the problem.

    It's probably one of the front sway bar links.
