Anyone know the exact difference in height drop between the front Hotchkis springs and the front Global West springs?

My goal is to raise the front end up by around 0.75" or maybe an inch alltogether. I have Hotchkis springs, but I was thinking that they might not buy me more than 0.5" in lift.

From past posts GW springs are about stock 95-96 SS height +.5" to -.75". You can always cut them to bring them down a bit or use a spacer to bring them up. Just be careful... Ed Runnion has indicated that 1/2 a GW coil = 1.5" of drop.

When I had stock springs and IAS shocks on front the car set at 26 1/2 inches.With G.W. springs and HAL shocks the car sets at 27 1/2 inches.I did not add spacers.
