96 2.5TL. MY CAR DOESN'T SUPPORT MUCH WEIGHT IN THE REAR ANYMORE. DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE STRUTS/SUSPENSION COILS?
1996 Acura TL • 214 miles
My car is a 96 Acura 2.5tl and has 17 inch rims on it which is bigger than factory but over the years ive noticed that the car doesnt support any weight. Like if i have 2 people riding in the backseat my tires will rub the Wheel well because the car is lowered due to the weight. When i first got the car it didnt do that. even with the Rims. I've heard its bad rear Struts or suspension. is This accurate and if so how do i replace them?

1. Lift and support vehicle. Remove wheel assembly. Remove rear seat. Remove strut mounting base nuts. See Fig. 2 .
