'87 W124 230TE Ride Height

Hellooo again forum...

And this weeks question for all of you out there who obviously know so much more than me.... What is the correct ride height for the self levelling rear?
Is there a maximum height? (knowing full well that playing around with it too much will wreak havoc with the front end alignment). I'm asking because I do tow a couple of weighty trailers and do load the back of the car from time to time and it's bum is sagging just a bit. I did take off the connector from the valve and the back goes up and down well when you play with the lever. The car rides very well with a load or trailer, just needs to come up a bit....adjusting is easy....I need to know how much and where do I measure it from.
