Mini, what measurement are you looking for here? I measured from the ground up to the center of the spring hanger crossmember. Are you looking for the clearance below the lowest point on the spring hanger itself (at each ends of the crossmember)?

From the ground to the center of the crossmember, not the bottom of the spring hanger brackets.

Hows this,  You can open photoshop, then highlight and copy your excell sheet and paste it onto a blank photoshop.  Then save it onto photobucket as a jpeg.
