Hi, my name i Tim, if the front end is bottoming out on even small bumps, then your springs are weak, and will need to be replaced, the overload springs will help, but replacing the original springs would be a better option, can you do this?

Then i would first start with a new set of springs, overloads can be added later, if yo still need more firmer front end bounce, shocks will not do anything for it bottoming out, they just control dampen the bounce,Tim
