if you were using the old oldskool steering block and the kingpin with e-clips that locate the block, then shimming out droop (or refreshing the springs) could be needed.
edit: Ha! it just hit me that you may have been asking for guidance on how much droop, not how to set droop. for now (or until i put in a shorter spring or longer kingpin), the basic assembly has enough preload to have no droop. it did seem a little stiff steering so maybe the springs need to wear in a little?
