I posted the exact same thing a while back...it can be done! IMy fiancee has a 2000 F4 and we took it to Lindeman Engineering and they lowered it 1.75 inches for her. As I doubt you have Lindeman Engineering back there, just find someone that does racing suspension back there. It took us a while to find someone, but it's worth it to get it professionally done. You will want them to lower both the front and rear end as well as stiffen the spring. I haven't ridden it a great deal since we got it back, mostly because I can't pry her off of it. I rode it for two years though, and from what I could tell after they lowered it that much it didn't affect the handling at all. It costed about $650, but again, its worth it to have someone professional or someone that is very familiar with suspensions do it so it is done correctly. Good luck!
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
