1996 993 Suspension Too Low for Springs?

Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Model: 993; Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 76,350;

I have read in other postings your opinion on how low you recommend lowering the suspension from the stock ride height. I realize that you do not recommend lowering more than about 3/4" or so. I chose to have mine lowered a little more and it is now at the European Carrera RS height specifications. It is basically at around 4.10 inches (give or take 1/4") of ground clearance measured at the specific points on the suspension under the car per Porsche.I installed Bilstien shocks and dampers with H&R springs and my question to you is: The amount that the H&R's are designed to lower the suspension is 1.4 & 1.5", Front and Rear. Because I have basically lowered it about an additional 1/2", will this cause any issues with the handling of the car? Or, is it alright for the H&R's to be basically be compressed the additional 1/2" as they are currently.Thanks for your help!
