rear end feels loose, lol

when I take slow sharp corners or long fast sweeping corners the rear end sways quite badly. When I push down hard on the back of the car and let go the suspension rises but does not bounce but it is a lot easier to push down on compared to the front which is very stiff.

Just wondering does my rear shocks need replacing or could it be something else before spending 100's on the wrong parts.

thanks in advance

trailing arm bushes can help, but if you really suspect the shocks then start there as you know your car.,
A pair of Sachs are 115.

cheers, Just had it confirmed the shocks have gone soft, ended up ordering a pair of KYB for 134 since that is what I have fitted to the fronts.
