I think 4 is probably the max. Most coilovers are the same except for the stiffness in the spring. My DZ coilovers are all the way down sitting on the strut hat on the fronts. The backs are about a half inch up from the bottom of the sleeve. Check out the link in my SIG to see some pictures.

what size tires do you have? mines are 215/45/17 which are almost direct replacements for the stock size. Maybe yours is undersized?
