engine revs when going over bumps

It seems whenever I am accelerating and going over a bump the engine revs higher. It seems like it looses traction when it goes over the bumps so it causes it to rev up quicker. I am wondering if this happenes to other people. It only happenes when I hit bumps and accelerate. The rear shocks were replaced not too long ago and the front strut assembly was just done as well as nerw ball joints. Anyone think it may be ball joints?

Sounds like the trailing arm bushes to me.

does the car feel like the back end is loose when you go over pot holes?

It is the equivalent of what the front feels like when I went over bumps with bad ball joints.

Sounds like the bushes then my friend.

Cheap to fix if you have the right tool....the bushes are around $40 each but the compression tool is around $350.
