All cars have springs

all cars have dampeners. (ala,. shocks or shock cartridges)

you can see there are no classic dog bone shocks, so, the are inside the struts.

if the tires bounce it can be out of balance tires (weights fell off, gee look)

or bad dampeners. (regardless of hidden or not)

or BOTH,

that is correct weak dampers do no like tries, that are marginally balanced. for a fact.

best is to get the tires balanced first, (cheaper and faster)

the run with what happens.

all lose suspension parts, why not get a pro check the why for you

so you dont need to guess.

bad ball joints, and tie rods.

loose parts, allow, illegal movement of parts, and make the system fail. and kills good dampeners in the process.

by beating them to death .

Four things to check; tires, shocks/struts, differential, and breaks.

tires: check to see all the tires are balanced and at the proper pressure

differential: if you are hearing a grinding sound and there is oil dripping from the rear or front differentials you should et them reaired

shocks/struts: push down on the bumpers if you are able to bottom out the susspension then you need to replace the shocks/struts

breaks: if your breaks are squeaking or you hear metal grinding then you may need to replace the brakes

the differential would be your most likely candidate for the problem the way you have described this problem, but don't rule out the others because it may be a combination of the problems.

Can uneven tread cause the spider gears to grind out in less than a few months on a jeep liberty 2005

Possible that running two different sized tires on the same axle could do that (differential thinks it's going around a turn all the time). But sometimes that is caused by low fluid level or improperly hardened gears. A good tech can tell you that by just looking at all the gears inside the housing, especially if he has racing or off road experience (there, you see every type of failure known to man).
Having a wrong sized tire or tires on there can damage the transfer case as well. The better all four tires are matched, (even within the same size and brand) The longer your drivetrain components will live.
