It sounds like your shocks are too long. Perhaps you could get more out of them by using the outer most mounting holes, or maybe you have to put more limiters inside the shocks. Check what offset cups are on them. Maybe you could adjust them in with the eyelets a bit, or look into slightly shorter shock shafts.

If they are compressed at the proper height then it sounds like they are too long, and I don't think the amount of rebound in the spring will change this.

Sounds like you are trying to set ride height with the droop screws? Adjust the shock collar for ride height.
