I have a 2011 Town and Country (70k miles) and I had a clunking develop on the driver's side a few months ago. I figured out that the strut bushing/bearing was the cause and the clunking was the spring winding up a little and then releasing.
I sprayed some spray lube in the top and the clunking went away for a while. It came back a few weeks ago and I finally got around to replacing the struts. What I found was that on both of the front struts, the spring had slipped off of the top pad that it rests on.
My question is: What could cause this to happen to both of the struts? Is there something more systemic that could be causing this that I would want to fix as well?
