Welcome. Looks fantastic doesn't it.
Unfortunately et11 all round does produce this effect. Staggered sets avoid the problem. Et11 on the rear is good, but higher on the front usually works better.
Springs, there's no one size fits all solution, only trial and error. Or luck, haha. I just recently raised my SE up and I think I got about an inch going up a nub size on the front. Check through the search archives I would, loads of info as you probably know.
Even getting what are meant to be correct springs, doesn't always get the result you were expecting.
What a shame it has to go up. I feel you though, I had mine that low and drove it for a bit, but wow was that painful so it had to go up.
You might want to consider a sump guard, there's a member on here that makes them. The sumps on these can hit on bumps when lowered. Sudden loss of oil etc.
