F350 Leveling Info

How can I tell if my truck is leveled or not?

I bought it second hand so I do not know the history, I looked and I do not see any spacers or anything on the front springs. It does appear to sit pretty level though without a lot of the rake I see on other F350's. The front coil springs are also not black like factory springs, they are silver/grey and appear to be pretty heavy duty. Looking at my window sticker I do not see anything related to snow plow or camper package etc. The previous owner did do some mods to it though like Firestone Air Bags, tinted windows, roll n lock bed cover, smoked cab lights etc... so I think he may have put the front springs in aftermarket.

Are there any measurements that I can take from say the ground to the fender lip to compare to a stock F350 height? I will attach a few pictures of the coil springs and maybe someone can tell by looking at them.

Thanks

Either they powder coated the stock coil or its aftermarket. I don't see any spacer at the bottom either so if have to say its leveled. What's the difference between the height of the rear fender and the height if the front fender?

I have progressive Rough Country 1.5" springs on my f-350 and they are grey. Likely what you have. That's the right way to level.

Well it doesn't look there are any coil spring spacers, and the track bar bracket doesn't have spacers either, is the track bar adjustable or is the axle shifted to one side?

Your truck looks to sit just like mine. Mine has the camper package on, in which I believe are the springs from an F350. Mines a F250 with a long bed as well and has very little rake. Yours look clean and they very well maybe aftermarket.

I think you hit the nail on the head. I went and looked at their website and that looks exactly like what I have.

I dont see any adjustable track bars or any other indication of front end modification.

My rear sits at 43.5 inches to the fender-well and my front is 42.0 inches, could you take some measurements from your rig? I am not sure what the factory rake is but it appears to be more than the 1.5 inches that I have.

Thanks
