sag amount vs. No. of turns on ring nut?

Does anybody have a rule of thumb on how many turns it takes on the spring pre-load ring nut that will give you about 5mm of race sag?

I've found that slight movements in the rings make a BIG difference here. Mark where you are with a crayon so we can guage how far you turned the rings. Try just 3 "knotches" first and measure...IMHO

free sag will be determined by how worked over the rear spring is(even fresh springs will have a slight variations if you throw them on a spring tester)....no way to determine these settings by # of turns unless you were consistent on the rest of the variables in the equation. Turn and measure is still the accurate way to set sag.
