Camber change when lowering

Has anyone measured the camber change per (XXmm) when lowering/raising the vehicle with adjustable coilovers?

raising the car .7 inches required removing 2 shims. So um 1 per 35mm?

For suspension adjustment I always follow a process:

Set ride height
confirm/adjust for rake
corner weight
set camber
confirm/adjust toe

I find the Elise touchy enough with small adjustments I'm never comfortable fiddling with any part of the alignment with out checking everything.

2006 Elise with BOE 400 supercharger and some aero mods, CRF floating oversized rotors, MCS single adjust coil overs, CRF exhaust, CRF sway bar w/adjustable link, mono-ball pivots, machined steer arms, baffled oil pan, CRF titanium toe link brace, hardened motor mounts, Ethos wheels w/Yoko slicks
