I'd recommend against cutting the springs, and instead replace them with a new spring. I ran Eibach Sportline's on my GT, and loved 'em.

It would not be wise to cut your springs. Although you can do it physically, the springs were not designed to be cut. Best bet is to buy aftermarket and a progressive rate spring. I would say your stock springs are progressive rate, too.
