Fox TALAS 32 & F100 32 Questions

Does anyone know the crown to race measurements for these forks? Why don't fork manufacturers publish this?

I'd like to possibly upgrade, but don't want something that will throw off the bike's geometry.

I found this:

I wonder if I can rely on those numbers. I have seen different ones for the 32 TALAS. Does adjusting the travel on that fork effect the ride height?

Thanks! If you can, set travel to 100 mm. Or if you have a lot of time measure at all 3 settings. I have read that the number does not change, but if would be interesting to see firsthand (eh... secondhand).

The 100 will likely be 470.9
and the 120 will likely be 490.9

On my Talas, in 140 it is approximately 20" from center axle to bottom of headset. In 100 it is approximately 18 5/8".
