NO, NO, AND NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
this is almost as dangerous as cutting your stock springs.

if you want to lower your car, please do it the correct way by buying new springs and struts, or coilovers.

stay away from heating your springs because when you heat them they loose the rate they had before to support your car so your car will be really bouncy
