Default Ksport gravel spec

Looking at putting the ksport gravel ralley coilovers on my 07 2.5i. I live on a dirt road and enjoy driving extremely fast for about a 20 mile stretch of gravel with tight turns, potholes and generally mixed conditions. Where i live also has pretty intense winters and this car is daily driven. My only question is if anyone is familiar with the ride hight on the lowest setting on these things. I still do drive it on city roads quite a lot and i dont want to make it super super high and have my fittment look awful. Has anyone owned these?

why would you want to go 1" (30mm) lower than stock ride height on the car if you are going to "rally" down a gravel/dirt/imperfect road for 20 miles?

it appears the coilovers retain their full travel, even if you do go lower.

are you at stock height now? what is wrong with stock height? do the roads you plan on driving warrant a higher ride height to avoid damage?

the ksport gravel spec look beefy, but to me, in my book, "low" and "dirt roads" don't generally go together
