Top-to-bottom bias (CG height) This measurement requires you to lift the rear of the vehicle 30 inches off the ground with a forklift or hoist while the front tires are on scales. The "raised wheelbase" is the effective distance from the rear-axle centerline (drop a plumb line from the rear axle and make a mark on the ground) to the front axle centerline.
