If your ride quality was acceptable before hitting the dip, and then began to get worse from there make sure you get the car to a shop for a through inspection of the suspension up on a lift. Your ride quality shouldn't dramatically change a month after installing the suspension unless there is something damaged or maybe binding. A very hard look at the sway bars, endlinks, struts, all mounting points and condition of the control arms and bushings may turn up something that's been damaged after your hard impact.

A "blown" shock will likely leak, and feel loose and uncontrolled. If the car is feeling significantly firmer or more harsh than it did after you first installed the suspension package look for something binding or damaged. Either way a professional inspection should shed some light on the situation.

I would try to find out what's wrong with it before I bought anything else.
