cutting notch

ok, i almost have all my parts gathered up to do my 3/6 drop. another week or so and i'll have my springs and shocks ( thanks, 5.3Vortec )

my question is how do you know where to cut the notch? do you unbolt the springs from the axle then raise the rear end until it hits the frame to mark the area that need to be removed, or is there another way? all my notch hardware consists of are two plates with the arc in them and two square pieces with a C-shaped piece inside them and two flat plates with 5 holes in it, one in each corner and one offset to one side in the middle.

I made my own template since the DJM notch didn't include one. I just cut it out of cardboard then etched it into the undercoating on the frame to give me a nice line to cut along with the angle grinder.
