But the point from doing dips is to workout chest and tris. There is no need to go all the way down to workout shoulders. Even without weights, my shoulders ache when I go all the way down.

Two moves that strain shoulders for most people. Behind the head pull-downs and going all the way down on dips. For the lucky few who don't have shoulder issues, they can do those moves. They'll benefit from it like you're saying.
