    How high is your anchor point? I've seen people run out of adjustment vertically if they anchor very high on their face.

    A low peep sight will make your arrows impact low. If you are dropping your chin to get your eye down to the peep sight, I would recommend raising it. Even a 1/4" can make a big difference.

    If that isn't the case, then your limited to what you can do. If your arrow is at a 90 degree angle off your string, then raising your rest will make your nock point low and arrow flight will be poor. Make sure your arrow is nocked level to 1/8" higher than your rest with the rest in the up position.
