Default Bilstein HD's with H&R Sport springs? Bad idea?

I currently have Billy HD's on my 05' mk4 golf...i also have a set of used h&r sport springs that i rescued from an 05' GLI at the pyp (thought I had thrown these away last year but I just found them tucked away)... now i want to lower my golf just a smidge... is this a bad combo? anyone running these together?

If I’m not mistaken HDs are sport valving on the stock length dampers. From what I’ve always been told, lowering springs get put on sport dampers.
