Bouncing too much in the rear end

2006 signature

I am not a mechanic at all....just looking to be informed about what's wrong with my car so when I take it to the shop I know what it needs

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Smoke coming from radiator when the heat is on

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

Hello, the bouncing is most likely due to worn shock absorbers. If you are seeing steam/smoke from the radiator and having to add coolant there is a leak. A shop will need to pressurize the system to find the leak.

The rear shocks list for 95.00 piece and require 2 hrs to change. PRessure testing the cooling system should be a half hours labor.
