09/10 rear suspension seems toooo soft

During some of my recent trips I have noticed that when I have my dogs in the car there is a definite "sag" in the rear end. The total dog weight is 240 lbs plus other gear 150 lbs TOPS.

It also seems to bottom out going over speed bumps at relatively slow speeds. I hear a thump.

Is there a problem for the dealership to fix? if so, what do I say is the problem?

The rear suspension must be able to handle 400 lbs in the truck area???

Any advice and/or help would be appreciated.

or just put one of the dogs in the front seat, or just let one of them drive...
But they're terrible at parallel parking and always argue over the music selection! :wink:
