1972 k2500 Stock Ride Height



Hi all


Can anybody give me the stock ride height measurement for a 1972 K2500. Center of the wheel to fender lip on front and back.
I have a picture for illustration, but are the sizes the same?

Re: 1972 k2500 Stock Ride Height

Above measurements should be pretty valid regardless of tire size as long as suspension is stock, but keep in mind my suspension is 48 years old...

If you install original diameter tires, the below chart shows what overall vehicle is for the stock suspension and original tires. So, if you're doing a factory restoration, that little red box is what your end state overall height should be. Chart in post 1 is for a 2WD.
