The riser height is 22mm, from top of strut to top of riser.
They also work well for better over all rear susp control and handling.

If anyone wants an alternative - I use these from VW/Porsche:

I cut them down by eye and I just measured them after seeing Ceejays dimensions--mine are exactly 78 mm! And work well I can saying after going on a gravel road last year.

I too use 80lb rear springs but from US supplier Qa1--they are guaranteed not to sag-front springs are DBE 115lb.:
