ZCP springs compared to stock M3 springs

How much lower are the ZCP springs compared to stock M3 springs?

This discussion has been kicking around for a while and I'm yet to get a definitive answer. Whilst I'm sure stock vs zcp springs have different rates can anyone confirm that the springs are of different length, the ZCP is meant to get its 10mm lowering from the fact that the spring perches are lower.

In short, I'm not certain you can throw in ZCP springs into a non-ZCP stock suspension setup and result in a 10mm drop.
