When lowering a car what is measured in mm/inches of drop?

Is it the actual spring (uncompressed) or is it the centre of the wheel to the arch or is there something else that I need to be educated on?

i know when i did my reno GTT i measured from arch to centre of wheel,but they had torsion bars,and i let the back beam hang down and jacked it up both sides using scissor jacks to get my height and battered the torsion bar back in,lol

iirc the standard measurement is from wheel centre to the wheel arch, not sure but 275mm sounds familiar factory. anything up to 25mm drop is ok any more will cause tyre wear issues...

What I did was measured from the wheel arch to the top of the wheel because that was where I was wanting the car to go, then I measured from the bottom of the adjuster ring on the suspension and lowered it down minus what I wanted. Seemingly worked brilliant for me.
