Refreshing to see a shop attack the rear bushings - most places would slam new shocks in there and call it good. I like them already.
I agree with jeffo22, that spring replacement yields only a very short term improvement and isn't worth it. Yes, I would replace the bump stops and use the best bushings your guys can supply.
Another approach would be to find entire rear control arm assemblies out of a wrecked '06 or newer wagon and transplant those in there. Those models don't experience the sagging nearly as much IMO.
