i believe the car should be level while adjusting the brake compensator
valve (or whatever it's called).
i haven't read the procedure for the TQ's but i installed a Sachs kit once
in a 4KQ and either the kit or the 4KQ Bentley mentioned this.
also, i recently helped a friend install a lowering kit in his passat
and the kit came with a plastic replacement piece that changed the
effective length of the spring.
