getting springs reset

Hi
Im thinking about getting the springs reset on my BA XT, only 1 inch lower. Are there any disadvantages to resetting springs?

Re: getting springs reset

Depends how long you keep the car. Long term no short term yes. They will fatigue much faster and have a high chance of one side sagging more than the other. Suspension travel obviously is lower so Bottoms out much easier as well.
In hindsight I did this to one of my cars years ago and had no uneven heights but it did bottom out harshly as time went by.
If you are keeping the car for a long time get new coils.
