I don't want to make permanent changes to the bike, because when I sell it, the next guy will probably be taller than me.

I bought a set forks and a shock off ebay and had it lowered for trail. I switch back to the other suspension for MX.
Even with the lowered suspension, I can only bottom it in the woods while jumping big water bars, so it's a win/win on the trail. I would not ride MX with the lowered suspension though.
MX-tech lowered it for about $75 each end with a suspension service.
You can also lower the seat foam a touch and file out the subframe holes to get the seat a little lower still.
