Factory height measurement

I hate to post this because I know I've read it here before, but there's something wrong with the search feature so after half an hour I gave up. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bag.gif[/img]

I'm looking for the factory distance from the center of the wheel to the top of the fender opening on an 88-98'. I think it's 20" or 21", but if someone knows I'd greatly appreciate it.

Re: Factory height measurement

mmm, I think mine was around 21.25"ish. I don't remember. But you're around the right height. Really though, there's no real set height...kinda ligh the tbar bolt measurements. I think when we did the poll on this, is was 20-21".

Now mines around 27-28.25" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Why do you ask senor?

Re: Factory height measurement

Hey Devin, can you measure from the center of your wheel to the top of your fender for me? Not the top of the wheel opening but the actual top of the fender? Thanks [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I'm trying to find out how much actual "lift" I have on my chevy. I think it's around 4.5" but want to see if I'm correct or not.

I was trying to figure out how much lift I achieved out of the RC kit. I measure 26" front & 27" rear, so 5-6" lift including the body lift. Kinda sucks I only got 2" out of that kit. That must be why the sawzall had to help me clear 36"s. No rubbing now though! I would go another inch with it but it wears out ball joints bad enough as it is. Next step after the 14-bolt will probably be a 6" lift.

Re: Factory height measurement

Thanks for the measurements, I'm at 5.5" of lift roughly... More than I thought but thats ok. Back is sitting on jackstands so the weight transfer has the height up a little as well...
