I think STD coilovers will let you go lower since you can lower by making the shock body go deeper in the mounting strut. ( im terrible at explaining this)

The gap will be the exact same. Just less tire in there so it will appear smaller

I have H&R coil overs also.

You can remove the tender springs in the rear, that will get you a lot.

For the front you can get shorter top mounts (I assume you have stock) like ground control. You could also order shorter linear front springs.

Anyway aren't you bottoming out the shocks?
