First question that comes to my mind is the 512 Byte Sectors, anyway you can find out if that drive might really have Advanced Format 4096 Byte Sectors?
(Reaching for an explanation! )

No to all three. I can only expand or shirk the partition downwards, which is why the free space being at the top is so annoying. I think the problem may have started when my bootcamp partition screwed up a while ago.

You need to clone everything to an External HD using CarbonCopyCloner or Disk Utility, then erase and return the Internal Hard Drive to 1 Partition. Then clone back from the External Hard Drive using CarbonCopyCloner or optionally reinstall OS X and migrate back from the External Hard Drive using the setup assistant.
