    Are my shocks or suspension f?

    So I just recently purchased my 5th gen
    when I done my own service raised the front of the car and put it back down, it seemed to bottom out front and back, wow did it feel bouncy after about hr worth of driving it settles back to normal,

    when it bottoms out I've gotten out of the car n it looks like it's been lowered u can fit 1 finger in the gap usually u can fit 2-3, and not sure if this is related but sometimes it feels to sloppy just wants to go left or right with bumps on the road or it could be me being lazy n not holding the steering wheel strong enough

    Ok enough of talking do/ should I be looking into it?

    if you push down on car where the shock in question is, and your car tends to bounce and not stabilise quickly your shock is stuffed.

    you could also check the suspension for any obvious signs of damage.

    I agree, sounds like stuffed shocks. As for the car pulling with bumps etc, you may want to get an alignment check. If you ask they'll check your steering joints/ shocks etc at the same time..
