Either bad shocks or uneven wear pattern on the tires, rotate the tires and see if the problem is better.

Shocks are a safe bet, unless it has been lifted then you should check the rearend mounts

Symptoms of worn rear shock absorber


To test if your shocks are worn, go to each corner of your vehicle, put two hands on the car, and now pump the corner down hard a few times rapidly, trying to get it to bounce, than quickly let go!, If the car only bounces one or two or three times and stops, they are fine, If any one corner bounces more than two or three times and keeps on bouncing like 5 or 6 times, it's a worn shock. Worn shocks can make it feel like your driving a big ol' loose boat across the road, even in a small vehicle with movement both side to side and up and down, so can worn or loose body bushings, worn suspension parts, under-inflated or broken in or worn out and softened tires. If your ride height seems low it could be worn springs, Shocks are cheap and easy to change, especially the rears. Springs aren't cheap and can be a pain to change on some front ends. Good luck!

Check your rear shocks. On the fender, push with your body going down. Upon releasing, your car should go up and down one time then settle. If it goes beyond or hesitate to move, you have a problem with your shocks. I think you also have a problem with the shock absorber bush. It does not matter if you have a new or old shock absorber. The lifespan of the shocks depends on the way you drive on bumpy roads.

Sounds like you have a bad strut. I would replace both rears at the same time and go with the entire assembly as you probably have problems with the springs also.

NO PUN INTENDED. If u are asking about "if its a shock absorber" I professionally advise u not to tackle the repair. It may not even be a shock we're referring to.

Check your rear shocks, what you are experiencing is called axle ***** and is usually caused by worn shocks.

Everytime i go over a speed bump my car makes a funny noise.


Struts on the front suspension and rear shocks need to be check.

Look of oil mark / drip at the side of each strut and shock.

Do the bounce test.

Press do not move corner of the car and release.

It should bounce back up and lever down (in one singe up then down movement)

=====

Struts and shock last between 60,000 to 75,000 miles depending on the road condition.

My guess would be bad ball joints. Raise the front of the car and place it on safety stands. Find a long board or some type of tool that you can put under the front tire and pry up on the tire. If the ball joint is bad, the tire will move up and down. You could also get some movement with a bad shock/mcpherson strut.

2002 grand cherokee thumping noise coming from rear susp.


I had a similar problem about a year after having rear shocks replaced, turned out there is a round metal tube through the bushing at the top end of the shocks, if you tighten the mounting bolt down too tight these crack and allow a bit of movement which causes the clunk. Replacing the shocks (at another shop) solved the problem - two years ago, no recurrance. Take out the shocks and check that little metal tube (I'm sure it has a more technical name); if it is cracked, try to find replacements (otherwise you have to replace the entire shock) and be very careful when reinstalling them not to tighten the mounting bolts down too tightly. Don't know if maybe there is a torque specification for these mounts, perhaps a Haynes or Chiltons manual could help here. Good luck.

Rear coil springs are in need of replacement. They are the only components that give the vehicle its stance / leveling. Normal factory shocks simply dampen the ride and absorb road bumps.

Changing rear shocks on a 1990 jag


No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under comfortably..it will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs off....in most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.
