This are the blocks and then with a ride height meter you can meassure between the setup board and the hubs.
I meassure droop with a ride height gauge under my hubs on my onroad car, but with calipers on my offroad cars. Just meassure the length from center hole to center hole.
Most people measure the shocklength in offroad so that's a little compare setups when you it in the same way. And it's cheaper

There are the droopblocks if you want them: http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...pport-Blocks-2

Go to your local hardware store and buy 30mm square tubing. That's what I did and is heaps cheaper. Just have to cut it. Easy

I wonder how many times JQ had to reshoot for everything to work out the way it did.
