I had this same feeling on my BJ-8 and it ended up being the bushings that are on top and bottom of the leaf springs , sandwiched in by the large U bolts that go over the axles had worn threw !

I checked the rear suspension for play and found that one of the rear shackle bushes had split. Ordered a replacement set from Steve at UK Healey and fitted them last night. The attached is an image of the old bushes removed from one side and as you can see the shackle pin had worn through the side of the bush.
