how low is it?

it could just be the rear suspension is on the way out and going soft, hence catching. i think your gonna have to get some new springs to increase the rid height.

having said that if its that low it may be on coilovers which are adjustable, so its just a case of increasing the adjustment.

do you know what suspensions on it?

that'll be it mate, short version is they need raising up and the geom setting up to suit should be fairly cheap as in under 100
