Shop said that as Im 100 kg's, it would bottom out and be uncomfortable if i lowered it. Also said the 8 Balls sit a little lower than non 8 balls, so think ill leave it. But I know it would look sweeter!!

It should be fine lowered. You just have to adjust/stiffen the pre load on the shock.
Bike looks great btw, just needs the matching pulley now.
