You're going to want new springs. If you cut off a coil or two, you've made a much smaller range of compression, while the spring rate is lighter a little. You'll soften it up, and lower it.
Best bet would be to get a set of lowering springs from TY. Smellbird here has them. Good struts are important as well. It handles better, that'* for sure, if you dropped and put some performance sway bar endlink kits on there, you'll feel like you're driving a car that'* better then new.
One guy was running spring compressors over two coils over a year ago, but i'd consider that dangerous, and along the same lines as cutting it, if not worse.
