Default Adjustment after passenger side control replacement?

I just got done replacing the passenger side control arm. According to the manual the engine is supposed to be adjusted so the difference between the reference points is 119 mm. I measured before rotating the engine and it was 119 mm. Does that mean the adjustment is complete without doing anything? Thanks

Double checking after running it won't hurt anything.

Mine was the same after putting new dog bones on after a belt replacement. It was right on 119 mm.

Yep. As long as you don't loosen both top and bottom strut mounts at the same time, there doesn't seem to be much chance for movement if the one staying in place is in good condition. But you should always check to make sure after changing out one of the two mounts.

Thanks for the input. I guess I'll call it good unless something changes.

You're supposed to loosen both upper and lower motor mounts. The distance at the top will be the same because you didn't loosen the bolts but the rubber bushings won't be loaded correctly.
