Sorry,
Late night. I should have said add the thickness of the washer to your mic reading to get the actual height. Just don't forget to do it for each spring, or mic reading. PIA but it works. I double checked it against a pair of calipers and the difference was negligible, especialy on spring height.
Come to think of it, I think I used a 0.060" spring shim and opened the hole a little.
