So when I put the car up on the jack, I knew I had to jack up the hub till the center measure 13.5 inches to the wheel well/fender. That is the best way I could find how to get an accurate measurement of what load actually would be with the car on the ground.

So with just jacking up the hub without knowing how high to jack it up, it isn't possible to know how long the endlink truly needs to be.
Yea,thats the closed you can get,doing what I did,lifting the disk up, as far as u can go,without lifting the car,just puting the cars weight on the 2 lifts,that way it simulating the car on the ground...
