Where to measure??

I'm getting the TSB done Thurs and I'm going to order my lift this week...and I realized that I don't know where to measure the overall heights @.

Using the OME set up with the trim packer- I want to make sure I'm level all the way around, and specifically right to left in front.

Measure to the body seems like the answer- The spring perches are at different heights front to back...Maybe to the shock mounts??

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I center teh tape on the axel, and measure from the ground to bottom of fender. Many people dont like this method, but it works for me. Most accurate way is from the center of the axel to the bottom of the fender.

Outside the wheel well then- Bisecting the tire/axle to the bottom edge of the outside of the fender??
