Default 2013 Lancer Sportback GTS Weak Rear Shocks

Hi All,

I recently put on a set of 1" hub-centric wheel spacers to beef up the traction, stance and appearance, and the car really looks awesome! But now, whenever I hit a bump or dip in the road. the back-end is bottoming out on the tires, hard, even with an empty cargo space. Add 20-30lbs, and the rear is damn near dragging on the tires. What's the best/easiest way to really stiffen up the rear shocks or raise the back end some so that stops?

Thanks!

Scott

***8/20/13 UPDATE***

In lieu of spending thousands, I got a 6" X 1" Coil Spring Rubber & sliced it into 8ths, got the car on a lift and had them pounded in with a rubber mallet, one every 90 degrees, 4 per coil. Presto! Problem solved, and it actually increased the rake of the care in a great way!!
