Fortunately, the rear shocks on our VW's are very easy to replace. I would agree with the other post that the dampers are worn and the mounting isolating rubber portions have dryed up and failed. There is also a bump stop thats incorporated into the upper damper piston area that prevents the rear end from bottoming out. This may have failed along with the damper causing your problems.. Good Luckm JKkarmann72 said:I just bought a 2000 GLX with 50K miles on it. When ever I go over bumps, it feels like the rear suspension is bottoming out. I jacked up the car and looked underneath. Nothing looks broken. Could the shocks be bad?
Anyone else have this problem?
