MPC8313E I2C Undershoot

We are using the MPC8313 in an application where it is the master controller to a few slave devices.  Whenever the 8313 pulls either the SDA or SCL line low, we see excessive undershoot of up to -1V and causes communication problems with one of the slave devices.  We currently have 2K pull-ups since one of the devices needs the faster 400Khz bus speed.  Even if we increase the pull-up size (5-6K) we still get an unacceptable amount of undershoot.  Putting in series resistors at the input of the MPC8313 is not an option since we do not want to re-spin the board.   I'm not seeing any current control options for the I2C GPIO pins.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Heath
