Back End Skipping about.

Whenever im on bumpy roads in my 172FF
the back feels like its skipping/Bouncing around,
If im on a bend or the road has an adverse camber and I hit a bump,
it jumps to one side.

My m8s 182cup doesnt do it at all and thats lighter,
we have concluded that my rear shocks/dampers are on
the way out. (doesn't look like there leaking though)

Are we right or is it something else?

Sounds possible yeah. how many miles have they done? is the suspension standard?

Totally standard setup

The cars done 52k its a 52plate and I have no recipt for change of shocks.

Had the car since july.

My Cup is doing this at the mo. Next time it is coming out I'm getting it sorted. I think it is a duff damper as it is really crashy over bumps but only on the offside rear

Mine does it on both sides.

Sh1t scary in the wet!
 
Dampers probably leaked and failed

£50 for a new one idealy replace both sides ie both rears at once there easy to chnage.
