Vel Satis Bumpy Ride, anyone help???

Hi, sorry if im on the wrong page or wrong area but I could not find how or where to start a new Question.
My 2003 2.2dci Vel Satis Manual has started to feel decidedly uncomfortable when going over bumps. I'v had my local mechanic look at the suspension and he says its all OK. The car has done nearly 50k miles and the ride is horrible over bumps now and the whole car seems to bounce and rattle where previously it was a ride of comfort and luxry.
The fault I think is at the back of the car? The mechanic did say there was a small amount of play with the Rear Anti Roll Bar Bushes but the play was minimal.
Help, any suggestions? I have never seen these Bushes for sale on E Bay so I assume its a Renault Item?
Hope you can point me in the right direction as I still love the car and I dont want anything else. I had the car for nearly two years and 12k of luxury motoring.
Many thanks, Jon.
