Anyone Know the stock Ride Height

Does any one out there by chance know the stock ride height for a 03 F350 Crew Cab 4x4. Iv been noticing that stock trucks on the road look taller than mine so im wondering if my springs have sagged alot. Im thining about taking it in an having all 4 sets re-arched. Maybe if someone could get me the measurement from the ground to the fender well on the front and back with stock tires that would help alot. Thanks.

Don't know if this helps but I measured my 97 F350 and my 04 F250 from the top of the axles to the bottom of the frame and they were both at 13"s. I did this the other day because someone else kinda had the same question as you.

Thanks for the quick responce. Ill check mine and see how it compairs. Im thinking of taking it to the shop and having all the springs re-arched and see if they can level it out for me. I would like to put a small lift on it but I want the stock height to be right first.

I wanted to do the "small lift" as well..I did a 4inch..I tore my jeans jumping into the back of the bed one day lol. But if you want it more leveled out do the leveling kit, cheaper and easier to put on. I cant even get my quad in here anymore..And I use my truck for work...I work for my dad and he owns a construction company so I always have material and block in here..wow PAIN IN THE A$$..Looks sick though!

Yeah i just want it to have a stock level ride. I dont care for a lift on this truck cause i drive it every Day. I had a truck with a lift and I thought it looked great but it was a pain to drive because it was so tall, you coudlnt really use it to do "Truck Stuff"

I just eye-balled mine and its no where near 13". I would like to find out how high its supposed to sit from the factory because if i do the Level lift i dont want it to be pointing up.
