Correct - that's with the car level and the spring plate hanging free on the torsion bar, separated from the trailing arm.

It's a good idea to center your spring plate adjusters at the same time, so you'll have that ace in the hole should you need it at a later date to fine-tune your ride height and/or corner balance.
