I'm also 5' 7" and 29" inseam and I slightly raised the rear of mine to improve turn in. I want the bike to handle right on the move, not paddling round the parking lot.

If you want to lower, though, and aren't concerned over-much about negative effects on steering and cornering clearance - which I quite understand - please think twice about following the advice to drop the forks through the yokes by 1 1/8".

The most you can go without risking the fender impacting the lower triple on hard compression is 1/2" (10mm).
