Default Endlink Measurement Request

PLEASE. Anyone who has a 92-99 bonneville with an FE1 suspension that is planning on installing energy suspension endlinks on the front, I have a favor to ask.
Assuming you don't take the wheels off and do the install by rolling the car up on ramps:
When you unbolt/cut the old endlinks off, can you measure from the hole of the swaybar to the hole in the control arm?
The bar will raise slightly when the endlink is off.
It'* probably best to put a string between the two points then measure that.
The pourpose is to see how much if any I have to modify my endlinks to have the correct preload on the sway bar. Right now it'* higher and preloaded more since my car is dropped 2".
Edit: Thanks Bill for helping me figure this out.
