Dodge Grand Caravan - 2003 - Squeaking

The recent snow storms in Baltimore have wreaked havoc on our roads. I hit a few bumps at too fast a clip. Took the van to the car wash yesterday (Sunday) and now there is a grinding sound when I turn the wheel and the van sounds like an old bed spring. Any ideas?

Power steering fluid. You have none.

Interesting, do you think it’s a by-product of the bouncy roads and the car wash - or just a coincide?

You might want to have the front struts inspected to determine if one of the struts springs is broken.
