    Good chance of failing an MOT with an observant mechanic if you cut the springs. Surely they won't seat properly either?

    i'd be wary of doing something like cutting a spring to be honest, think if something nasty happened and you spun on a wet road it into some kiddy on a bike, for example, or some old dear crossing the road. the investigators would pull the car to bits looking for anything, and even if such an incident was nothing to do with suspension, they'd pin it on that - and would the insurance company want to know you? does the pope poo in the woods?
