I not sure if I fully understand your question. Are you asking should your car be bouncing more when you hit a bump or pot hole?

Well this is how struts and shocks are suppose to work: Struts and shocks are suppose to assist in providing a smooth ride, when you hit a bump or pot hole the struts and shocks absorb the force so you won't feel the full impact when driving. A good set of struts and shocks will eliminate excessive bouncing when driving or when you come across bumps and other mishaps in the road. So inconclusion if your car is not doing a whole lot of bouncing when you are driving that is a good thing, because that means your struts and shocks are doing their job and that means there is nothing wrong with them.

Fishtailing when i drive


You need struts and a 4 wheel alignment. Sounds like a control arm in the back bent, or worn

If you had the struts done, you should have had an alignment done asap afterwards. If you didnt, that could be why the struts have gone bad already.

Replaced sway bar, backend is still swaying,when I hit a bump the backend moves like ots fish tailing


Could deff. be the rear struts on this car but could also be that the alignment in the rear is way off causing the wheel that is supporting the most load when hitting a bump or pot hole to pull the car in the desired direction that that whell is angled toward. But if you are leaning towards replacing the rear struts do that first since it also requires a 4 wheel alignment then all the bases are covered. Otherwise if you try the alignment and that isn't it you will have to pay for a second alignment after the struts are replaced.

When i hit a bump it feels like it bottoms out . Do i need new shocks, shruts?? It just really smacks hard if I go over a bump or pot hole.


You could only need the Bump Stops that are rubber and prevent the shocks from hitting the chassis.

OR you may need shocks

OR just the strut bearing at the top of the strut if the struts are not leaking.

When i hit a bump, the back end of my 2000 eldorado fishtails. Why?


It's likely caused by a worn out strut or struts in the rear. You hit a bump and the wheel bounces because the strut is not damping properly. This causes an effect sort of like riding on only 3 wheels because the bouncing wheel is not supporting the vehicle steadily while it's hopping.

1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo. Gets the death wobbles when going 50 or faster and hit a bump. Have to hit the brakes to make it stop.


Front shocks/struts may be shot...not dampening the blows from the street.
Also...very important... wheel balancing. Wheels that are out of balance will start bouncing like this too.
Also check alignment if it's only when you hit a chuck hole.

The front end and steering wheel shakes when i hit a hole or bump


This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!
