Default Ride height adjustment with skid plates??

Do you set the ride height measured at the chassis or the skid plates if you run them and why?? Thanks in advance.

i just figured the height of the chassis is much more important because it affects the height of the entire car,greatly affecting the handling,balance and center of gravity where as skid plates only affect ground clearance,i would rather have the skid plate hang down a few mm than the entire car ride a few mm higher and affect the whole chassis setup

I agree, just wanted to see if my opinion was same as the popular vote or not. Thanks for your input john.
