Been there, done that.
As low as you can go and be above the scrub line if you wanna be truly safe. So if any part of the car is lower than than the rim should you pop a tire you ain't gonna be able steer or stop properly.

For the next cut remember its a 2:1 (approx) ratio when you cut. If you cut 1" of height from the spring it will lower the car 2" at the spindle.

It depends on where you live, here in Chicago you better have about 6 to 10 inches clearence ( roads suck)
