F350 suspension height specifications

Does anybody know where I can find factory height specifications of a F350 2wd? I would like to know, if my suspension is indeed to low / wore out.

Thanks

i guess nobody has info on the factory ride height ? maybe factory height to the roof and to the top of the tailgate? I’m looking for something to see where I’m at on my truck.
thanks

Most body shops with a frame machine have the ride height specs

Just bump it back to the top. Calm down. It's easy to overlook a post and have it get a page back. Have you searched the internet yet, you could have said something like "I looked on google but did to find anything, just bumping back to top in hopes someone knows here".

Your truck is old.... It's worn out and sagging. The end. If it rattles and clunks, it's obvious the bushings are shot. Why do you need exact heights. My truck is shorter than others of the same year, not because it's sagging, but because apparently my grandfather ordered it that way. He was a short person. Not sure if it's true, but the front tires wear perfectly across, so it can't have sagged too much, and it's a good 2" shorter than my coworkers truck of same generation.
Are you planning on replacing springs and you want something to go by, or does it just sit crooked, or tires have too much camber... My 92 2wd 4door sits super low. I put 265s on it to raise it up a little. But that one also wears tires nearly perfect.

ok.. maybe i need to be specific:
YES i did do a google search.
No my bushings are not wore out. except the sway bar bushings on the rear axle.
Tires wear evenly.
As for the height: I believe my front springs have sagged over the years as well as my rear springs. but before i purchase new springs, i wanted a reference to see, how much they sagged. If it is only minimal, than I’m not buying springs.
thanks a lot for any input

If the tires aren't wearing funny it can't be sagged too much. If you only need the smallest camber bushing for alignment then I'm guessing it's only sagged1/2 to 3/4 inch. Which isn't worth getting new springs to me.
