Question about BMW 318
As for the suspension, if you've carried a lot of weight back there, you've probably damaged or ruined the struts. With them damaged, the springs are doing everything. Struts/shocks are there to dampen and control the rebound and compression of the springs, and if they're blown, the back end can bounce around. When you hit a bump, with no struts to control the oscillation, the springs will trampoline the car's back end around. Get the struts inspected and replaced if need be.
