1995 corsica

i have a 95 corsica and i put new struts and shocks on it and it and also got it lined up at a garage but when i go over a bump or a small pothole its bad its almost like i put old worn out struts and shocks on it is this the way the car supose to be i thought maybe cause i didnt put on new strut mount but could that be it please help

Were the new shocks and struts aligned after installation? If not, thay must be at least checked. The new shocks and struts might be more sport-oriented and therefore stiffer. Were they original equipment replacement, or a sportier version?
