Try checking the rear spring bushes in the rear.
Also check the u bolts are tight & that the spring has not broken a centre bolt.

i agree with 125 a broken centre bolt it has to be its the bolt that holds the rear spring pack on either side together look for movement marks around around the insulator rubbers where the spring and diff housing meet I.E around ubolts its an easy fix undo the bottom of the shock and move it away [wheel off and on stands of course and new centre bolt in hand from any spring resetter ] firmly with 2 g clamps hold the spring pack on either side of ubolts then undo ubolts remove the plate that shock was on jack diff up a bit off spring old bolt out new bolt in you may to put a screwdriver in hole to line up leafs and then tighten bolt remove clamps reasemble greg venomXR6
