Proper height for 110?

Is there some standard way to know exactly how high a 110 will sit with stock OEM springs? Mine are sagging. Is there some easy way to know exactly how high one will set with new OEM springs? Like, inches from the ground to the top of the roof or to the wheel well opening, for example? I know they all vary a little bit.
Thanks

There's this:
but using the ground as one point in your measurement does not factor in different sized tires.

What I used to determine the lift I had (or sag in the case of my front springs) is this:http://forums.lr4x4.com/index.php?sh...12#entry437086

The best way to measure your lift is to measure your spring heights with the
vehicle parked on level ground,measure from top to bottom of the rear of the
front spring,and the same for the rear spring,with quality springs you will
find that the drivers side is always slightly taller

STD 90/110 FRONT SPRING measures 260mm +/- 5 mm
The REAR SPRING should be around 300 mm +/- 10mm
