No, because they are apples and oranges and dont measure the same thing. Here is an example I always use. Lets set up an imaginary car like the following:
Ride height 5mm
(difference between chassis and arms, adjsuted with the screws in the suspension arms) 6mm
(a downstop setting of 6)
(how far the car lifts before the tires come off the ground
Now, without changing anything else, tighten your shock collars ALL the way down so the are as tight as they go, which would MAX out your ride height. Lets say that makes your ride height 7mm. You would end up with the following:
Right height 7mm
Downstop setting 6mm
So droop, and what you are changing with the grub screws in the suspension arms of the car, are two completely different things.
