When the springs are first put on, they are a little stiffer, and might not achieve the maximum drop that the company states (In Progress' case 1.8 Front, .75 Rear)
Settling down simply means that the longer they are on the vehicle, they break in and eventually settle down to their lowest setting.

Let it settle dude. I did mine Saturday and started with:

Before:
16 1/4 front and 14.5 rear

After:
14.5 front and 14 rear

So it dropped 1.75 front and .5 rear.
