QA1 Pro issues only when going to low?

been reading up on these coil overs quite a bit and think I will be ok but looking for some feedback to ease my mind.

Background Info
69BB, Went with bigger rubber and they started rubbing, added spring rubbers to bump it up (springs may have been for SB?).
Now I just got tubular A-arms and the lower A-Arms have a 2in drop? I take this as meaning the car will drop 2 more inches meaning more issues

Now with the research, I've done the QA1's only have issues when they are lowered too much which seems like the opposite of what I am hoping to do, I think I want to raise my ride height about 2inches or more...

open to other suggestions

Re: QA1 Pro issues only when going to low?

A coilover shock has limited adjustment range. It needs to be roughly centered in its travel at ride height. There can be issues when too low or too high.
