I feel ya on the gap. I have the same drop and tire combo. At 1st I was all pumped about being lower, but that quickly turned to "content" LOL. I've always wanted to go lower, but didn't really find it too practical, plus I would've had to spend more money on stuff to go along with being that low.
But I have the opprotunity to go an inch lower now so I might take it, as long as I can keep it in alignment. Buying a new set of tires too and I don't need them crapping out on me in 3 months! haha
