    Its going to be a failure on one side, but you should really replace in pairs. Go to both corners and in turn press down hard on that corner and let go, it should rise fall and settle. if one or more corners bounces more then its your shocks, there real easy to replace with only 2 bolts to remove. Next with the car on the ground, grab the top of the wheel and pull and push the top in and out, there should be no movement, if there is then your looking at the upper controle arms. These are harder to replace but still something you can do on the drive.

    Both things are common problems mate, but odds on it will be a sticking shock.

    HTH.
