Not Happy Rear shocks

I have just lowered my GTV ts all round (40mm noivtec springs), car looks great........ but it bottom,s out at the rear on even the smallest speed ramps and pot holes, there are a lot of speed ramps and pot holes to be found on Irish roads!
I put in new standard shocks on the front and that seems ok but i did,t change rear shocks as they seemed to be in good nick.
Anyone have this problem.........what rear shocks would be best?

Re: Rear shocks

Commonly Konis or more expensive Bilstein B6. The OE shocks are a bit of a weak link at the best of times and the uprated springs will only be working them harder so new ones are a must.
