I'll share my experience on this topic. Like you I have a 32" inseam.
I took an extra seat I had and decided to shave off one inch (1") of padding.
What I can tell you is that after my first ride with this seat, I knew it was COMING OFF.
Here is what I would suggest you consider before going with any lower seat.
On your bike right now, would you install a set a handlebar risers that bring your bars up one inch (1")??? If the answer is NO, the DO NOT lower your seat because that is exactly what will happen when your riding in the seated position.
My suggestion is to go the lowering link route and have the front springs cut down to match the back (a suspension guy would probably need to do this). You can slide your fork stanchions up in the triple clamps a bit, but not a whole lot before you front tire will start hitting your fender.
It will probably cost you a few $$$$ to do all this, but if thats what you want, then it might be worth paying for.
Personally, I have just adapted to the seat height

Example: you can put on a 1" lowering link and drop the front 6mm (about 1/4 inch) and it'll be balanced. Or you can put on a 1.75 inch link and raise the forks 1/3 inch (give or take based on personal preference and riding style, terrain, etc.), reset sag/dial in high speed compression/rebound...and it'll be balanced and feel planted in turns.
Resetting sag is very crucial after installing a lowering link with its increased leverage.
