Yes, it will reduce static ground clearance, but the additional stiffness in an aftermarket lowering spring will reduce overall the distance that the car cycles up and down when going over a bump, ie. speed bump. If you go with the RCE springs (0.8" drop) you only sacrifice that much ground clearance and spring rates increase 50% over stock.
