loud groan when correcting steering to left at 65 mph

Asked by Apr 09, 2017 at 08:35 PM about the 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan 4 Dr SXT Passenger Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

noticed over the past week that steering was pulling to the right - thought that
alignment was askew - today while traveling above 60 mph there is a loud
groan when the steering is ONLY turned to the left - all fluids levels ok -
noticed that left u-joint shaft is warm while right shaft is cold. What is problem?

Take it to an alignment / suspension specialist ASAP before you kill somebody. Yanking around on the steering at 65 mph when the front end is making groaning noises is not the best thing to be doing.
