It's the mounting position on the shock tower. 97 mm for the front is the most outer hole on the tower and the inner one on the lower arm. 98mm on the rear is the middle hole on the tower and the inner on the lower arm.

Its your Droop setting. measure from the top center shock bolt to the bottom center shock bolt. Adjust your droop to front 97 rear 99-100.
