Quick Test for Shocks

I have had a problem with my TF for sometime now, when I go over a decent sized bump I get a bang from backend.

The garage has checked suspension several times and also I had them visually inspect engine mounts and are ok.

The only other think I can think of is my shocks, is there ant simple test I can do to see if they are ok.

I would assume I would notice if they had gone.

I have tried the bounce test but I thought the TF shocks would be stiff so don't get much of anything.

Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks

Is the ride height look ok? Do you get a bumpy ride?
