Generally speaking, are coil over suspension ment to be adjustable while fitted to the vehicle? Or should they be removed and the spring compressed before any height adjustment is made?

Normally on car adjustment is possible with most as far as ride height is concerned, generally at full hang is easiest and way to go. Valve adjustment varies with manufacturer, some like Koni need to be fully removed to do this.

Yeah, the Nolathane (rebadged Pedders) units I have are adjustable on the vehicle it turns out. I just did as you said above.
