I actually just ordered my 460 (1" lowered as well) last week. In talking with Klaus, he provided the following info:
The 461 allows for separate compression and rebound adjustment. On the 460, the the two are linked. In other words, as you adjust the shock to be firmer you will also be adding resistance to the rebound setting - and vice versa.
He also said you can always add the the reservoir later to convert your 460 to a 461. It would be more expensive than going that route right off the bat, but could be done.
While I really would like that added adjustability, my biggest complaints about the airshock is the static height, the extension of the shock as it unloads, and having to periodically adjust the pressure. The 460 will resolve all of those.
