1989 Turbo Dodge Caravan at the Mission street legals racing an STi, Oct 14/11.
Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3700 lbs with me in it, GT35R turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16 valve DOHC head.
At the last Street Legals of the year, trying to run a 12 again but she's not cooperating, had computer issues all week and died this morning, managed to get her fixed but was cutting out as you can hear. Would die at the line then catch, 2.4 60 ft and ran a shitty 14.1 to his 13.7. Figured out my rev limiter was only set at 6K, not sure how when I set them to 8K. Never got a chance to go back out, dew set in and game over.
Has been a frustrating year to say the least, sigh, here's hoping 2012 will be kinder.

dodge caravan noisy steering DIY fix
The 3rd and 4rth generation dodge caravans Are notorious for developing
loud and hard power steering. Most people think that it is either the pump
or the rack but it is probably just the screen built into the power
steering reservoir. Dodge uses inferior hoses that start to degrade after
about 50,000 miles and that material plugs the screen causing the pump to
starve for fluid.
Your best bet is to change the reservoir and hoses but this little fix
should get you through another 50,000 miles or so.

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.

1989 Dodge Turbo Caravan beats a Viper at the Mission street legals, Sep16/11
Fully loaded van with a/c, interior, full Exhaust and auto, 3700 lbs with me in it, GT35R
turbo, 2.5L 4 cylinder with a TIII 16
valve DOHC head.
Playing at the Street Legals, just fixed the trans, no tuning, so trying to
tune tonight. Ran a 14.0@96 mph.
Viper guy was NOT happy, almost got to race him again but he dodged the
bullet. Later on, wouldn't even look at my direction, lol.
