Default RCA vs ride height

I'm going to fit some Hardrace offset front lower ball joints mainly to gain some more camber, these also comes with spacer plates that changes the roll center.
I don't want to lower it any more than it is right now (around 25mm) but correcting the roll center seems like a nice idea.
These plates are 8mm thick so would that mean they will lower the ride height by the same amount?
Just thought I would ask first and maybe save some time when adjusting back the Öhlins.

it will lower it close to 8mm. The ball joint is pretty close to the center of the wheel hub.

Great thanks for the confirmation.
So that means I would have to ad 9 turns (13.5mm) on the damper length. 8mm / 0.589 (motion ratio) = 13,58
Sorry it obviously only should be 3 turns (4.7mm) on damper lenght. 8mm x 0.589 = 4.712
