as for leaking transmission, you would probably see a puddle of oil underneath the vehicle..(place a clean cardboard under the vehicle overnight, if you see any oil (preferably red, assuming trans oil has been changed) then yes, it is trans oil leak.. as far as front end, its a big area to cover, see picture for front end and website ( http://prostreetautomotive.com/steering-suspension/ )..check tie rods ends for freeplay, ball joins for freeplay, springs cracked, bushings (black rubber) missing or broken..

Thank you so much I love my van an it drives really good it's just when I back up it makes that noise it's that going to be expensive to fix???
