Is there any way I can measure to see how much lift is on my buddies truck? He bought a truck that was already lifted and is wanting to find out exactly how much lift the suspension has and we can't figure it out, we don't have a stock truck to go by, and he has 37's on it, so im sure we can't just go by the fender to wheel height. Any ideas?

The rear has 8in of block, I need to measure the front somehow.

Yeah, wow! Really? Take some pics of the front coils and rear springs at the blocks

Sorry, that was a typo, meant to say 6" of block.

Measure from the center of the hub to the top of the fender opening. Mine measures 24"s front and 26.5" rear. Stock height. Subtract these measurements from whatever your buddies truck measures and that will tell you the height of the lift.

My measurements are 26" on the front and 27.5" on the rear. I bought the truck used, so does this mean I have a leveling kit installed?

I'd say there's a pretty good chance you have a lift on the front at least.
I looked at some pics in another thread and it looks like I have a 2 inch leveling kit in the front. Looks like a round piece of steel above the coil. There is also a 1" block of steel added to the rear.

DM i would definately say you have a leveling kit judging by your pics and the fact that it measures 2" higher in the front

I just bought the truck and I'm the third owner. The more I look the more I find that some things have been changed or added. The second owner did have some larger tires on the truck at one point. So I guess he needed a little more room.

Same thing happened to me, I am the second owner and when I got it I knew it had an intake, but it turned out that it also had a leveling kit like you, and also a couple more surprises

This truck measures right at around 31 or just a hair taller on the front, and 31 in the rear
