reading links and sub linked info may not be fun,
but you may be amazed at the amount of wasted time and money,
you can save from being wasted with the info gained in the process
you may not find the link you need, specifically,
but the info you do read, should make you think,
and question the process, ask the related questions,
and look at all your options carefully.
and yes if your installing a suspension, measure accurately several times..
assume nothing is correct until its carefully verified several times,
and yes your very likely to make mistakes,
so Id suggest you measure with the suspension and tires sitting on the ground,
before, you decide on tires, clearances , Finnish welding of the suspension links , spring perches, drive shaft angles etc. are finalized/ begins
