Default Ranger Jiggle

Every Ranger I've driven, jiggles when you drive over a large enough bump, including my own. Just wondering if anyone knows what causes this. Could it be torsional flex in the frame? My 2011 sport has rancho shocks on it from the factory, how do these stack up against others?

Also when I hit a bump while going around a turn, the rear end dances and kicks out a little like it loses lateral stability during jounce. Whats up wit dat?

Mine does this too, I can't tell you what it is, but it's been the norm in my truck since I first drove it when i was 16, which was 7 and a half years ago. I don't even notice it now adays
