5100s = true lift?

Just curious if 5100s with stock springs at any setting is actually giving you a true lift or a little less..

Reason..
5100s@1.75 (stock trd sport springs) = 21.5 fender to center of wheel hub.
5100s @0 884s (2 1/2 days old ) = 22.5 fender to center of wheel hub.

So either the 5100s set at 1.75" wasn't a true 1.75 lift, or the initial lift on some 884s gave me 2.75" lift...

Which makes more sense?

Easy answer if you measured the fender to hub before lifting.

I would guess that the 884's will settle slightly.

Didn't take pre (any) lift measurements...

Hence the question if anyone else knew....

Thanks.. So I guess 884s gave me 2.75" initially.. AWESOME.. I was looking for between 2" - just under 2.5".

With the slight amount of settle, I should be right on target..
