Just like Mr. Rolls needed Mr. Royce....I consider my calculator a colloborative effort. Your final tweek was to make this easy and painless for people to use...

... a team effort

This is all good information, but just what tool do I need to measure all of these angles, and how many splines (inner and outer) did you have to move to do your drop?

Use a magnetic angle finder, looks like a round dial with a hanging needle and a magnetic foot, find it in the carpentry area of a good hardware store. Costs maybe $10. Measure angle of top edge of spring plate, compare to angle of horizontal part of door sill. How many splines to move will depend on where your ride height starts out - yours seems pretty high from the pic.

What ride height does the calculator use as a default?
