Hi guys could anyone tell me if my rear axle is knackered or it needs new shocks it looks pretty straight but the shocks are completely compressed

The torsion bar is on the inside of the rear axle you will not be able to see it jack the car up to see how floppy up and down the wheel's are it only if the bearing's have gone on ether side will the wheel's tilt in .

I got my axle from Im axles recon  one spot on.£300 deliverd.. Waste of time messing with torsion bars,bearings ect,that's if you can undo them..that's a job in its self,just better off getting a recon axle.
