Not a hater - this is unsafe to do
Did this on a pickup truck, DO NOT DO THIS!! The coils compress at different rates, depending where on the coil you measure, you will throw the suspension out of whack and there is no way to weld or otherwise attach any kind of support to prevent the coil ends(where cut) from pushing through support brackets.
I found new springs as part of a lowering kit for just over $ 100 delivered(across border with customs, HST)on ebay, which is a far cry from the 200 apiece for OEM. A bit of research will give you the results you are looking for, plus sell the originals to offset the new ones.
