Re: I'm thinking of lowering my 1k
If you lower the front that much without compensating and also lowering the back, it will change the geometry of the bike enough that it would likely affect stability.
I should write an article about this, but I strongly recommend that people whose inseam is less than the seat height of their bike adopt riding strategies other than messing with the suspension.
For instance, get your seat scooped out (replace foam with gel) and narrowed. Stock seats are usually quite cheap on ebay.
