Shocks & Tires

On my 08 Grand Cherokee Limited with the 5.7 Hemi. I changed my rims to 18's, added new tires, and now am having problems on the hwy while pulling a small trailer when hitting sharp transitions in the road with the springs bottoming out. Very unnerving! I don't think they can handle the added weight of the new rims and tires. I'm sure I'll have to go to a bigger spring, and new shocks, or something of the sort, but don't know exactly what to do. Any suggestions would help.
