Yes they will work and even if you lower you can always get a couple of short pieces of board to act as a step.

Mine hit the bumper but that's why bumpers are flexible.

Ya front end height matters but so does rear end height. If the back end is up the front dips. Either way it will work

On what would you work with ramps? I've considered them too, but haven't figured out how they'd be useful for an oil change (which is close to my limit of mechanical ability).

I have a pair of ramps. They're on top of the storage rack in my garage. Haven't used them in years. A floor jack and jack stands are so much easier to use.

Some suspension work has to be done with the suspension loaded, ie on ramps vs on jacks.
