I'm with Frank.

Lowering your car by heating the springs is a bad idea. You're lowering the car not by fitting a shorter spring of equal (or higher) spring rate (which is the right way to do it), but by reducing your spring rate some unknown and uncontrollable amount. Your car already has soft springs, and heating them will soften them more (which isn't good for handling/safety).

Been there, done that, bought new springs.
