Jan 2008 73000    
74000 200 Dealer replaced Steering Rack. Brought van back the following week due to creaking sound in front end. Their idea to fix was to apply grease on the rubber bushing that connects the stabilizer bar to the frame. Now bushing pops out when under stress/bump. Rubber bushing popped out and stabilizer bar shifted to the right. Had to gingerly drive to local repair shop. They were able to fasten the bushing around the stabilizer bar but cautioned that due to wear on the clamp, it could pop out again.
