Hi

My name is Herz. Could someone please answer my question. Is my Dodge Carava 2002 and engine 3.6, a Front or Back wheel drive, sorry but I need to ask, before ordering parts.

I would also like to know. If your van gets struck by another car on rear side, and it damages the wheel bearing, drum and brask shoes, Is it best recommended to change right and left rear drums, shoes, or just the one rear side damage.

Thank You
Herz

Shoes are normally replaced on both sides to maintain balanced braking. You only need to replace one drum and wheel bearing.
