Not sure why you wanna go super low on Ohlins. They are best of the best and guessing they care about the compression / up travel they must have for maximum performance.

You can get shorter springs/softer springs but that defeats the purpose of having Ohlins

You can also consider rear lower control arms that have multiple holes for the rear shocks.

ISC Suspension is one that comes to mind.

My STI with our custom sprung and valved Ohlins kit..



Once you've bottomed out the sleeve for lowering your only option is lowering the spring which will cost you bump travel. You'll also need a tender spring to keep the spring seated at full droop.

This is our custom sprung rear with a much stiffer spring and valving to match:

Urge designs and sake bomb garage make lower cups for the s2000 ohlins. The stock ohlins lower shock body doesn’t have enough adjustment range due to the design, and looks the same for the STI
