Rear shocks?

So I'm no mechanic but this doesn't look right to me

well it looks to me the perch on which the shock mount is suppose to hold the shock broke through or it's the bushing to the shock mount which is toast. you'll need to remove the trunk panel and possibly the rear wheel to see what the damage is. if it is the perch, most likely need to get a plate welded in to correct it.

looks like your shock mount gave out. I have had the same thing happen to me. All I needed was a new rear shock mount.
