You can either use blocks and then a drop gauge to measure droop or just place the chassis flat on the setup board and use a ride height gauge to measure droop. Using the blocks gets the chassis up off the board and you can make it easier to see where you're pulling the measurements from. I usually use the lowest point on the arms at the outer hinge pin. So if I have antidive on the front I'll use the front side of the arm to get the measurement. Same thing the the rear, if I have any antisquat, I'll pull the measurement at the rear side of the rear arm. If that makes sense. I think it's what's ever easiest for the person checking their droop, as either way described above (blocks and droop gauge or chassis on the board and a ride height gauge) can get you the same result.
