SOA Lift Equation

I've been doing a lot of thinking about an SOA conversion and have come up with an "equation" but need someone else to tell me if im forgetting something....
here's the equation...

2x(Spring Height+1/2Spring Thickness+Axle Radius+ Spring Perch Height)=Overall Lift
if im doing something wrong here, please tell me......

From your current height, assuming you use the exact same springs, your total lift will equal 2 x the thickness of the perches (assuming you use the same kind) plus the diameter of the axle tubes plus the thickness of the spring pack.

well ive done more work with this equation thing and when lifting you should measure from the center point of the axle which would be the axles radius. while thinking about this today i found that i figured everything wrong....so i found another one
2(axle radius+˝spring thickness+perch height) = overall lift
if anyone has done an SOA calculate this up and tell me if i have it right now...

I think you're making this much too complicated for yourself. If you must have a formula it is:

Axle diameter + spring pack thickness + old perch thickness + new perch thickness = total lift
