I would say check the axle bearing.

Rear shocks are worn out and are binding when the suspension compresses. Time for new ones.

Thats what I was hoping, struts in this case, thank you

Oops, old time thinking here. Yes, struts. I'm sure you'll find that's the problem. If the back ones are done the front ones likely are too, so if its in the budget you might want to do all four and make it ride like new again.

Great, thanks alot for taking the time.
