Given how new your shocks are, I really don't foresee an issue until they are at least 50k

I wouldn't run stock shocks with stock springs for much more than 30-40k miles, don't see how they would last that long on aftermarket lowering springs. I think they're underdamped even with stock springs, more so on the rears. But then again I can't stand a bouncy ride, even a little bit. Seems like lots of members keep their stock shocks with springs.
