Report: Worn Sway Bar Bushings/End Links May Cause Noise in Front Suspension
Dodge Grand Caravan Problem
Average Mileage: 114,277 mi (20,000 mi - 223,000 mi)
Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

rattles when I go over bumps in the road, pot-holes, or sometimes when I turn. If I turn wheel back and forth while stopped or at low speeds you can hear it.

I have had clunking noises coming from the front of this piece of crap for most of the time I have owned it. The sway bar links have been replaced and/or tightened 7 or 8 times starting when it only had about 20,000 miles. Last time it happened, at 70,000 miles the mechanic told me worn struts were causing the problem so had those replaced at a ridiculous cost and the noise went away for about 6 months, now it's back again. I can only conclude poor suspension design and this is the LAST time I ever purchase a Caravan or any Chrysler product, since I have had numerous other problems with it.
