I am now dialed at 165 mm front and 220mm rear. I raised it up from a previous 160 and 215 thinking it was too low because I am experiencing quite a bounce on all types of roads, even a seemingly flat highway. It got a tiny bit better but I would say its not settling as quickly as it should. My stomach jiggles from the inside and by the end of my commute I am about done with it lol... I would say its a small pogo stick effect.. However, I keep reading how well these handle bumps and how well they ride on highway this and that. I have no other upgrades, no sway bars , end links, or bushings or anything. I dont' feel I should be experiencing this? Is there something I did wrong ?
I dont experience anything you mention and I'm sitting pretty low. Mine holds the road very solidly after bumps. The coils are my only suspension upgrade as well(just like you). But I have a 2011 so that may explain some of the difference.

I transferred the factory boot and factory bump stop I believe. There is a sheet that says what is required to transfer.

My front left coil squeaks a little when I hit bumps... I'd like to know how to fix that tho.
