Modded Suspensions Call - Request your measurents

Stewart posted in another thread on the ideal way to measure your suspension so that we can all have repeatable, quantifiable results. That way your tire size is not a factor


Step 1: Park on level ground
Step 2: Measure from the center of the hub to the fender
Step 3: Post the #'s and a short description of your lift/modded setup.


I'm trying to help narrow down the gains that people are seeing with the various setups. Maybe it'll help others


thanks






edit: btw, for anyone who still has a bone stock 4x4, can you through up your measurements?

I'll start


26" on all 4 corners as measured from center of hub to fender lip


Front: 2" lift shackles, with 1 AAL inserted into factory front leafs (I think it's 3" total lift)
Rear: "F" codes from a 2005/2006 F-250, 1 AAL from the factory "G" codes inserted into the "F" codes. gave me about 2" lift

So, with my 4" all spring BDS lift, I am getting 27" in the front and 28" in the rear.

Hope this helps!

If you want to level your truck and know comparatively to other trucks how high it is measure from the ground to the well, it is the easiest and best way. Mine is 39" all around

This is not what was requested and it is not the best way. If you don't want to participate, then don't. ONLY WARNING.

Tor already cleaned up some stuff in this thread but I'm gonna take it a step farther, don't poop on the thread with what YOU want. Either post what the OP has asked for, with the way he's asked for the measurement, or don't post.

Tylus, this thread is genius bud. I'm gonna go out and measure mine now, keeping in mind my mods were done back in '06.

5 star rating on the thread bud! Will add it to the tech folder later too.

My measurements are:

Front (L): 23.75"
Front (R): 23.75"
Rear (L): 25.75"
Rear (R): 26"

I put new V code and new B code springs on (bought from Ford) back in '06, along with new Bilstein shocks and a 3.5" tapered F250 block in the rear.

Stock wheels and tire size.

Stewart

LF = 26 3/4"
RF = 26 1/4"
LR = 28 1/2"
RR = 28 1/2"

'05 V-10 4X4
Did a modded X/B swap at 72k miles, springs were 20k take-offs, EX is now at 101k miles.

Front X code mod was to add the top overload leaf from the rear B codes to the bottom of the X pack.
Rear B code mod was the common addition of the EX's two bottom leaves and thicker between leaf spacers along with the 3.75" tapered F-350 blocks. I also cut up the old slapper style traction bar and added two sections of it to each side between the bottom B plate/leaf and the new taller blocks.

With these springs and additional goodies and Nitto Dura Grapplers in 305/70R18 on '04 SD Lariat rims the ground to wheel well lip measurements are;
LF = 43 1/2"
RF = 43 1/4"
LR = 45 3/4"
RR = 45 1/2"
Tylus, I know you didn't ask for the second set of numbers but I threw them out just in case someone may be looking for more info on a finished setup too.
I think this a great thread that will help a lot of folks looking to rework their suspensions.

On the most level ground possible, and the most accurate way to measure a lifts actual changes, eliminating variables like tire size

26 3/4" on all 4 corners from hub center to fender

Typical modded B's in rear

Modded X codes up front like Toms Jolly Green Giant

I measured 25" on the front. 26.5" on the rear.
V codes with dual bilsteins up front, modded B codes on rear also with bilsteins. All parts were brand new via CT Performance, and have been running them for 1 month now. Stock Ex block on rear. 05 V10 4x4

interesting numbers guys


hopefully this will help guys clear up how much lift they'll get with "X" + "Y" = "Z" combo for whatever end result they're trying to achieve


edit: btw Tom, when are you ever going to update your sig pic with the new 35's? those 285's look a little dinky

That situation pretty much sums up just how busy (or is that lazy? ) I am.

I actually shot a bunch of pics while on vacation of it, just haven't gotten around to sorting through them yet. LAZY!

I just bought the truck a few weeks ago and as far as I can tell, its a bone stock 4x4. 2004 Eddie Bauer with a 6.0 PSD.

Front: 22 1/2"
Back: 23 1/2"

Hope that helps.
