I'm sorry that this is a nuisince to you and your wife. But glad that you have addressed the tire issue. Yes I have ideas.
Inflate front tires to 32, inflate rear tires to 30. Drive it and get back to me. I cannot believe this service. The van was not an Olds Cutless, but did have a comfortable ride. Better(in my opinion) than other American mini-vans. Not unsafe to reduce pressure in lower temps. Many cars, same weight ran at 26 factory recommended. Not yours though. I just want to know. Its up to you.
The reasons for my reply are four.
1. Take your time, I am investigating this issue with Chrysler rep. At this time.I need to know how this changes the ride, improvement or no improvement. I also need tire manufacturer. Old and new replacements. Don't mean to bother you more with the tire issue but can't move forward with out this info. And differences in ride quqlity. 2. There are other issues also in the mounting of the whole suspension to the sub, and unibody frame. There is not any way to check certain suspension parts, other then visually. But we will see what we can do.
3. There is no Chrysler at this time to re-imburse your time. When, exactly when, has this started, mileage. Was it like this new? What was the warranty?
4. I have been working for Chrysler service since 1983. Their mini-van was their best offer to the automotive industry, and I don't want you to be uncomfortable at any time. My cost to help you is 0. Don't have too much time, but I will do what I can. Chrysler is in limbo.
Sorry. What, if any, original equipment parts have been replaced since new? Thanks.
