Re: frame specs

Are you talking dimensions, or material properties, or engineering usages, or what kind of specs are you talking?

Re: frame specs

How about this, a very good site for info... be sure to take a look as there is a table that lists the measurements.

http://www.chuckschevytruckpages.com/framespecs.html

Chevy / GMC C/K Frame Dimensions

Hopefully, these Chevy / GMC pickup truck frame dimensions will help those of you that have been requesting this info, as well as others. Frame dimensions are helpful, and a necessity when considering possible custom body swaps. Also handy for dump beds, and tilt noses. The oval shaped holes in the chassis are gauge holes. Pins can be inserted, and then measurements can be taken from these pins to verify that a frame is not bent or twisted.
Updated 4-30-03



Here's the top view....



Chevrolet used 39,000 PSI Carbon Steel to make all 10, 20, & 30series frames.*
