It rides rough and seems to nearly bounce to the other side of the road when I hit a bump


Sounds to me like your shocks/struts are shot. Do the "bounce test" - bounce each corner of the car and see how many times the car moves up and down before stopping. If it's more than 1-2 times, then you need to replace the shocks or struts, depending on what your car has. (I would imagine your vehicle has struts.)

When should my shocks be replaced


well sometimes they claim that this shock has a 45,000 mi average life, Also note the wear on the tire if there is any. An over inflated tire will wear in the center more than the edge, a under inflated tire will wear on the outer edges, a bad shock can cause a tire to wear not necessarily the tread but the smootness of the tire, is it all rough with raised tread edges or uneveness? Does the vehicle have sway or does vehicle bounce or washboard when hitting bumps? does the shock have visual signs of fluid leak? These are all signs of shock failure and should be replaced. And not necessarily al four at he same time, replace shock with manufacturer equipment if replacing only one, if replacing two on the same axle you can use aftermarket matched shocks or factory oem.

The car is hard to control in the highway constantly steering


Your engine and transmission mounts need inspection. Replace as necessary.
Jack up your car and support it on jack-stands.
Rotate the front-wheels and pull it towards your chest to feel the condition of the wheel bearings.
Do the same for the rear-wheels.
As for rear bouncing around corner: your rear-shocks need to check.
Last resort is to do frame inspection.

Terrible rear end rattle


It's probably the rear sway bar links. If you can jack your car up and check right behind both rear wheels you will be abale to see the sway bar which is connected to short links about 5in long with ball joints.

If either of them are broken or not connected anymore it can cause some pretty loud noises when you ride on rough roads or hit bumps. They run about $35 per link so it's not a very expensive repair.
