2006 Accord V6 - Front Strut Replacement - Raising the lower control arm advice

In preparation for doing a front strut (shock absorber/coil spring assembly) replacement on my 2006 Accord V6(EX) Automatic , I need some advice on an installation step.

After guiding the strut assembly and damper fork into position but before tightening any of the nuts...
1) The Haynes Repair Manual states, "Raise the lower control arm with a floor jack to simulate normal ride height..."
2) The ALL-DATA instructions state, "Place the floor jack under the lower arm and raise the suspension to load it with the vehicle's weight."

I need some clarity on just how high I must raise the lower control arm. Since this is my first attempt at strut replacement, your help is much appreciated. Thank you.

Raise it enough to jam the bolt in. Donít over complicate it.
