Hmm, my thread from our testing. Baseline is where we were (5"). Think going down to 4 3/4" is probably doable easy at least at my weight. Lower possible, but you will want to stay off the bump stops. Never realized how much they really upset the car till we tested it.

There's probably a bit to be gained in the whole "center of gravity" discussion by going lower, but if you could get an acceptable amount of camber from the car before installing the new hats, I'd lean towards keeping a similar ride height and (as Casey mentioned) using the extra travel to stay off of the bump stops.
There is, of course, the discussion that the bump stops "should" be used as a component in the suspension, but as short and stiff as these are (why did I just have an image of Sidewalk Johnson flash through my head) I doubt it's ideal.
That's how I plan to go when I get around to putting them on my car - at least initially.
