It's hard to tell without getting a look at it. It wouldn't be unusual to scrape a speed bumps with two adults in the back. If you push down hard on the rear corners once or twice and let go, if it stops moving straight away and isn't too bouncy, it's a good sign, if it feels soft or takes a while to stop moving there could be domething up

Could be shocks, springs or both.
Where are you based. I'm sure one of the members nearby would look at it for you.

I've had full loads in the back and even with two blown shocks never bellied the car.

But if she's slamming into the bumpstops then bouncing back up, chances are it's the shocks that're gone. Rear shocks are notorious on these for letting go (Like at high speed around parabollica....  )
