A quick drawing of a strut gives you your spring length. Add Desired travel and Spring compression together then add bump stop then the distance between the top of the shock and the halfway point of adjustment. should give you circa 7-9 inches...

Compression can be determined here

http://www.planetspring.com/pages/compression-spring-calculator-coil-calculator.php

Im guessing at 750 Kg's for your car or 1650 lbs. 45/55 weight distribution thus 453 lbs on each front spring

Need more data
