Default Looking For Advice

I have a 2010 Vegas 8 Ball. I want to lower the bike a little.
Not sure whether i should go with the 1" or 1.5".
I am 6'1" and 240lbs so i don't want to have rubbing or clearance issues. Is it even worth it to go for the 1" kit? anyone have any pics they can share. I know this has been discussed on here before and i have read through all the threads but i am still unsure on which one to purchase. I would like the bike to be the lowest it can be without greatly affecting handling and function.
My theory was to go with the 1" because I weigh 240. it was around like 175 i was thinking the 1.5. does this make sense??

thanks

Default another question

also, i have seen online that some kits are aluminum and some are steel. pros and cons?? i know steel is stronger but does the aluminum do the job, honestly didn't even check to see what the stock ones are, are they aluminum also or steel??
