Sounds like the shocks. Take a flash light a see if the shocks are leaking, push the cars corners down and then release and see how much they bounce. There's a DIY in the FAQ section written and illustrated by me, should you decide you would like to save a a couple hundred dollars on the labor should you need to replace the shocks.

if your car bounces around, then like the kid said, its prolly shocks/springs...

same sh*t happens to me except mine is lowered and it really thumps down hard over a speed bump.
