Bounce the rear of the car to check the suspension's normal travel, have a friend measure the down travel and use this measurement to see how much clearance there is between the axle housing and the stops on the frame. The stops are designed to limit the excessive travel and prevent damage, under normal driving and road conditions the stops usually do not have any contact.
