How low should the car be sitting? Springs were used so mileage is unknown but paint on the springs was still in reasonable shape. Adjustable sways bars installed at the same time.

RD springs,assuming they're the street lowering ones,should drop the car 1.2"/1.4",no more, UNLESS you're using Bilstein "sport" shocks,which will lower it further.It will also give you a relatively harder ride.I recommend the HD Bilsteins if a choice is still possible.

BTW, very nice car!
