Post some pics since here aren't any!
Another tip is to place a piece of painter's tape on the fender, so that you know where you took your 'before' measurement!

Basically, you're shortening the spring stack by removing 25mm of helper spring that's pressed from a spiral into a cylinder by the weight of the car, and 4mm of spring spacer.
Matches my data sheets exactly
