    2005 Ody has a smack your a$$ feel when going over bumps/speed bumps

    My Ody is ok as her front end passes over a speed bump (slowly I might add) but when the rear axle passes over the speed bump, every passenger and the driver all feel a jarring, smack on your tailbone sensation. It is a very hard, rigid feel. What on Earth is she telling me? She needs new shocks? She hates potholes and the way I drive her more like a race care than a mom van? Both?
    If she needs new shocks, do most of you get struts done at the same time, and an alignment?

    Get under there and see. I'd suspect a broken sway bar link or spring. With the van parked, jump up and down on the rear end to see if you can isolate it to one side.

    I also have a 2005 and it's always done exactly what you're saying. If I go over a speed bump I always go over at a slight angle, if I go over straight it's a smack your you-know-what like you said. My guess is that they didn't actually tune the suspension for the lighter load in the rear of the van, while the front end is so heavy.
