You can't really fault the associated shocks, they're not the easiest to fill, but the quality is top notch.

Fuel tubing should be your answer - a short length on the shafts will form a flexible bump-stop, which should stop your bottoming out.

Experiment with the lengths to get the result, but make them equal otherwise your car will start to handle unevenly.
