    Yeah unless the two people in back are seriously overweight, sounds like you need new rear suspension.

    Prius C (Aqua) in Pakistan is usually fitted with a suspension lift- some spacers on the springs. The spacers could have broken, or caused the springs to break on a rough road.

    The Prius C has a 800lb weight limit for driver and passengers... that is 4 200lb people...approx 2 200 lb people in the front and 2 200 lb people in the back seat...so how much do the 2 people in the back seat weigh...if over 400 lbs, the rear is going to go down...

    SM-S367VL ?
