It will work the same on your seat as it works in cars.It will be fine.......for a while,sort of.Then it will magically get lower and stiffer.
Heating them will not make them softer,it will actually make them stiffer,It WILL make them shorter,real short after awhile.
You will increase the intended spring rate(the part you heat will not be springy anymore so you are asking the spring to be softer over LESS coils,if you heat it enough it will become solid) and the part you annealed will work harden and break at some point.
In a perfect world you would change the springs.....or eat more chocolate malts...
