from the center of the control arm bolt to the lowest point on the spindle should be 4.56"

There really isn't any way to put it back to factory spec by just measureing the adjustment bolt....mostly due to tbar wear/sag. What you can do is set it up to factory spec ride height. See below:

It stil applies.... you've just got a spindle lift, your end measurements will be the same as ford's spec.

Ground to bottom of knuckle = measurement a
Ground to center of LCA bolt = measurement b
Measurement B minus measurement A = ride height as show in the chart. It doesn't change with a spindle lift.

yes 360 turns why would you assume 15 turns to be only half a turn?
