I see a lot of confusion about what is a highboy and non highboy. ANY Ford F250 4X4 truck from 73 to 77 and the 77 is before ser # Y20,001 Is what is nicked named a highboy. There is NO non highboy in these years. They are all standard Ford F250s 4x4s, the term Highboy is a nickname. There is nothing different about them, they all are the same as far as a highboy or non highboy. So if you have a stock 73,74,75,76 F250 4x4 it IS a highboy. 77 would be the only year that may or may not be a highboy. Highboys started in the mid 60s.
all 76 f250 4x4s are what is called a highboy. Most likely your front leaves have sagged a little over the years. From looking at it though it doesnt really look like yours has a rake? maybe 1"?
cool thanks for clearing that up. lol i was confused. well i think your right that their worn. when i got the truck, it had blocks under the front leaf springs. thats why it looks straght. im looking to get a lift kit for it but for now the blocks are staying.
to make things simple all the trucks that are considered HIGH BOYS will have a Divorce mounted transfer case and 3 drive shafts , short one from tranny - transfer case then a rear and a front one !
the front springs will be positively arched on the high boys , when the change was mad in mid 77 the transfer case was bolted to the back of the tranny and only had a rear and front drive shaft and the springs were flattened out !
well i kept the truck parked till now i replaced the blocks that came with the truck as of today. new leafs up front 2" lift and add a leaf on rear leafs. looks good and im happy the blocks are gone. one of em as already breaking. thanks for the warning. driving safe is the plan. =)
