#1

why car bounces in back


#2

Too much junk in the trunk?

Probably shocks/struts.


#3

A car bounces in the back because it has springs on the rear axle.


#4

Likely you need new shocks or struts back there.

Make model year and miles would help.


#5

The purpose of shocks or struts is to control the bounce from the springs. If it bounces, the shocks or struts are shot and need replacement.


#6

can both shocks in the rear go at the same time or can it have anything to do with the switch it has a 3 way variable switch for shocks(SOFT ,MED ,HARD) it is a 1995 montero 4wd sr


#7

Yes


#8

You are SO lucky. The Montero has shocks rather than struts. That’s lots easier to replace. Lots cheaper if you’re having it done.

Yeah, you need shocks.
