You can look up corner balance numbers from other cars and use these for comparison for your own suspension setup.

You can also look up calculated wheel rate (effective spring rate) for the torsion bars. Then scale to match.

Remember your physics class. For a spring: F=kx. F is your force (weight of the car). X is the suspension travel. K is the spring constant. If you want the travel to stay the same, and you reduce F, you also have to reduce k. Linear relationship here in the simplified description.
