Counting the threads isn't going to do the job. You must measure each side and adjust it from that point. I understand about the counting but weight is a factor and assembly line tolerances vary from car to car.
Some cars are lopsided from the factory.

so how does the suspension handle ?
i'm surprised there aren't any setting marks on the shocks. ???
so how much (in inches) is the drop ?
