.jpg   20190406_065710_Richtone(HDR).jpg (Size: 1.76 MB / Downloads: 22) Hello all I've put some bigger Wheels on my 52 plate berlingo. Now going over speed bumps with two people in the back the wheels run on the rest arches!. Is there any shock absorbers out there that I can use which are stiffer than the original ones??

Shock absorbers ( dampers ) don't control ride height so don't buy any of them for goodness sake it will be a waste of money as they won't fix your problem in the slightest.
The suspension springs control ride height but in a Berlingo are in the form of torsion springs so cannot be easily altered. From my understanding you can replace the spring with a stronger one, I'm sure others will advise in more detail but it will be a big and possibly an expensive job.

Can you get some longer bump stops ?
So where does this bit go then ?

He'd have less suspension travel and will bottom out earlier
