Default Sammio spyder front suspension set_up

When I build a SAMMIO I like to keep the cost down so the normal practice regarding the front suspension is to use standard Triumph shocks and a standard road springs with one full coil cut-out.
While this works fine and is OK for MOT's in UK it is not acceptable in Europe.

What I would like to know is what is the spec of a front suspension spring to lower the running height by about 30mm and provide reasonable driving performance on a standard 1300cc Herald chassis fitted with standard shocks and a SAMMIO BODY conversion?

I know many builders have found the own preferences but there must be a starting point/spring.
