Rear Shocks

to start:
08 DC TRD 6sp

I have the TSB and 1.5"AAL installed. I now have the feeling when I go over speed bumps my rears are topping out due to the added lift. Has the lift killed my up travel on the stock rears leading to the top out and eventual damage?
Looking for a solid upgrade if this is the choice.
I have 5100 on the front with Eibachs set at 0.85 and the ride is nice. I now do mostly highway and very limited off road but these speed bumps are killing me at my new work.

^^^^

This. Theyre always willing to work with you to find the best shock given the application they will be used for, and the budget you're working with. there's 5100's, longer 5125's, and then 5150's with built in resis.
