Handle bar height, advice

Hi.
So I swapped a fork on my bike. On new fork the steer tube is shorter by one spacer (6milimeters), thus my handle bars are slightly lower. What do you guys and gals think, will this present a big problem? I got fitted to the bike, will this mess it up? I'm going for a two hour ride now, and tomorrow will be doing hill intervals, so I will see how I feel. Just wanted to get another opinion.

Thanks.

I usually like my bars 1-2" lower than the seat... How's the bike feel with the lower bars?

Well when I'm in the drop outs, I can see a front hub. I heard it's a rule of thumb or something? Today I did hill intervals, so spent most of my time on the hoods. Although initial impression was that when I was in the hoods my diafragm was more restricted. I measured and handle bar is aboutg 3 inches lower then my seat.
