    Two installed is normal and sufficient. Other two are simply spares.

    Four drop pins would make things worse!
    Two pins diagonally opposite is correct.

    Never tried it so, I'd be guessing to what extent...but yes, it would further restrict the range of motion of the shock absorbers. I suspect you'd only notice a difference (with possible video vibration) in extreme situations.

    The dampers hold the gimbal on and cushion vibration at the same time.
    The anti-drop pins are just insurance and don't do the holding.

    I use two of the pins and add two small zip ties very loose on the other holes. Has not affected my vibration.
