    my site was over optimized - or so I thought.
    So I started going through every page and taking out all the keyword stuffing.

    It got reindexed 2 days ago and today the site went down a few spots.

    is the ranking decrease related to this?
    should I overoptimize again? or should I wait?

    Give it at least a week it should move back up if you decreased the over optimization.

    Yeah it probably needs a bit more time yet. If it jumped back into the rankings you're probably on the right lines

    Just give it time. Continue pumping out content that is not over-optimized and you'll surely see better rankings.

    What was the initial, and subsequent, ranking?
