stock ride height, F-350 dually

Does anyone have the distance from the top lip of the rim to the fender lip for the front and rear of a stock 2002 F-350 4x4 dually?

Its really the only way I can think of to make sure that the springs are stock and no leveling kit....

Most leveling kits were made by Rugged Trail and were a 2.5" lift.
I've put some on and the easiest way to tell (if it's Rugged Trail) is that one of the bottom springs on both sides will angle down(just one end) - can't remember if on front or back of spring-been a while,and not follow the contour of the rest.
Also look for a track bar extension piece.
If the truck doesn't have a nose-down look-it's probably had a kit put on
of some kind.

Sorry for calling it Rugged Trail
I meant to say Rough Country
Looks like your stock height,I just measured mine(with leveling kit) and is 11.0 in front and 11.5 on rear w/33"tires.
Now that the trucks inside--the bend down is on the front of the spring and is roughly the3rd leaf from the top down.

What are the companies to stay away from when it comes to shackle kits? Which ones are good?
