Setting sag on Lowered Rear

Hey guys, how do I calculate sag for a lowered rear ? I am down 1 inch in the rear. Are the sag number the same as for stock?

I lowered the rear with adjustable rear links and I set the sag to one inch. I had to tighten up the crap out of the rear spring due to the length of the swing arm I added.

No sir, your sag numbers are not the same with lowered dog bones.

You have lost a considerable amount of your rear suspension travel. This creates a multitude of problems both front and rear. Proper sag is just one of the hurdles you must clear!

I don't understand the concept(I do understand less travel), especially since the handling isn't being improved when lowering it.
