As with all of my scoped guns including the 870 that I take out of state from time to time. As low as possible to still allow function and a good cheek weld!

No higher then necessary to get the scope to clear the barrel.

Too High rings cause all sorts of other problems.

You didn't give us the objective size. Most 3-9X40 scopes would have a 40mm front objective. Many 40mm objectives will work in low rings, some will need mediums. It just depends on the individual scope, the gun it is used on and the mounts. If it is smaller than 40mm I'd certainly use low's. Between 40 and 50mm will most likely need mediums and 50mm or larger will probably need highs.
