If you lower the rear 1.5 inches and lower the front .5 inches. you will keep the stock steering geometry right?

I haven't yet, I was just wondering if I do it, if I can get it back close to normal

FWIW...I lowered mine about an inch in the rear. Left the forks in the factory position.
I think this helped the steering geometry. I felt like I was going over the bars on hard braking in turns prior to this...
