Is 1.75" too much for optimal handling?

I'm still heavily debating on shocks for the integra. I've switched to ITR LCA's, so the usuall supects Koni/bilstein/illuminas are my cheapest options. I REALLY want to try the bilstein, but all my sources say they raise the car slightly due to the gas pressure. I'm running stock ITR springs, and like the balance, so I dont really need the adjustability of the koni or illumina.

If I run the springs on the lower perch the car will sit 1.5-1.75"; lower than stock. Ricers aside, is this too much for proper suspension geometry on a DC2? I love the way it sits right now at .75" drop. I'm thinking the latter might bee too much to maintain the steering feel I have right now. Has anyone with coilovers experimented with a slight drop versus 1.5-2" Any help is appreciated. Please no nonsense. I dont want to hear from those who dont know. Thanks
