Bridge Pick up height for G5420 TG

I have a G5420TG and I have maxed out the adjustment screws for the bridge pick up height. The pickup sounds very weak compared to the neck pickup. They are the original pickups for this model. My questions: how much clearance is needed between the bridge pickup surface to the strings? And what is the resistance measurement of this pickup? Thanks in advance

I’m not sure the resistance, but common heights for Filtertrons is 5/32” from E strings on the bridge and 7/32” on the neck pickup (measured without depressing strings).
I use 5/32” and 7/32” drill bits as a feeler gauges.
