Just the exact opposite, you would raise the forks, not drop them. And you should really only use preload to set the sag correctly, and not use it as a substitute ride height adjustment.

Putting a 5mm or more shim above the rear shock top mount will speed things up without any of the ground clearance issues that pulling the forks through may cause.

SHim the rear and let the forks slip up through the clamps a little. And it will ride like a champion. Do you have a steering dampener? You might want to if you do this. Not that bad, but more prone to become a tank slapper.
