Yes, that change will lower your hand position and stretch out your overall position.
Being an old phart I'm going in the opposite direction to protect my neck discs. I wish I was lowering the rise like you are because you should improve handling since the lower stem will place more weight on your arms and distribute your weigh more evenly across the bike.
By the way, I did pass math, all the way through Diffy Q, just don't ask me to remember any of it.
