Hey Ratter...
I personally drop the car on a level surface then take a measurement...
When setting the tweek on a touring car I don't add preload, I change the length of the shock... I noticed by changing the preload to adj. for tweek the car doesn't turn the same or feel equal on the track... So I'd unscrew the bottom of the shock a half of turn and add a preload clip or turn the screw down on the shock body to maintain the same spring pressure. I like to use 4 scales to make sure the weight is eqal on all 4 tires, but if you use a tweek board setup, make sure you check the front and back.
Hope this helps..
