Oh I see. Well several reputable sources say slight nose down is good for aero. Again, I doubt it will show up in tank-to-tank fe measurements but in the end it should marginally improve things.

As far as heating springs to lower them, I've never done it, mainly because I read so much recommending to not do it. When I lowered the Coupe I procured another set of stock springs, and set aside my originals in the event that I would be unhappy or otherwise fail somehow with the lowering experiment.
