I don't understand why you have a dial indicator on the spring, but the lift measured there should match what you see at the lifter, with solid lifters. It sounds like your pushrod maybe flexing/bending slightly? Regardless, I'd do the checking with lightweight checking springs, or remove the inner damper spring.
