    Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! What do you mean by "misting"? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Mar 2 '19 at 20:33

Yes this could well be the cause of your issues with the ride quality - if the shocks are "misting" that means they are losing oil (although not at a huge rate) and as the shock absorber's oil level goes down so does their damping performance.

It might not be the only factor causing it - there's likely to be wear to other suspension components as well but it's certainly a big factor.
