Adjusting Coilovers

Might be kind of a dumb question. I just fixed the rubbing problem of my tires by cranking the coilovers 15 turns. I know they came preset to 2.5 like most of em do. After the 15 turns I wanna know what they are set at. Where to where do I measure to find that out?

Best bet is to crank them back up 15 turns, measure, and crank back down again. It's a relative thing so there's no real way of knowing for certain just how much additional lift you gave yourself.
