Default C4GP rear shocks or dampers issues

Hi guys, newbie needs some advice
C4GP rear shocks or dampers issues
I think itís worn out, damper bottom end cap
Came off and bouncing in between the spring
Like pingpong ball😅

Is it dangerous, driveable still?
Wats the cost for replacement?
Whereís the best plc or autoshop to send?
How Long will it take to repair 1-2days?

Thks

this looks like a bumpstop :-)

(yap18, please correct me if i am wrong :-) )

if it is a bumpstop,

i believe it's purpose is to protect the metal parts from contacting each other during maximum compression (over a hump or when heavily loaded, or both)

you should be able to drive, but do take humps slowly and don't load your car too heavily, until it's fixed.

if i am totally off-base, please correct me :-)
