Im going to go from 8.375 compressed to either 9.625 or 10.25 compressed. But how much would each shock difference actually lift it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Not much and the actual difference would depend on factors such as vehicle weight. No specific details can be derived from the information you have provided.

The size of the spring makes the height different as well and I don't think there is any calculation method available to make that evaluation.

You would need to check with the supplier on this.

Only the supplier of the component would be able to tell you that.
