I was under the assumption that a stock suspension created 7" of clearance from the top of the tube to the frame in the front and 5" in the rear. I just measured mine and it has 7" all around. Has something been modified?? Also can someone point me in the right direction for original suspension schematics?

Could someone with a stock suspension (when you get the time) take measurements from the top of the axle tube to the bottom of the frame? Thanks in advance

Stock would be best of course, but if I get the chance I'll measure mine, which has a known 3.5" lift with no other mods and a straight frame.
Give or take a half an inch for sag, it should at least get you in the ballpark.

There is a tech doc on the BC Broncos website. It says the distance from the top of the front axle to the bottom of the frame is 7 inches on a Bronco with stock springs.

There isn't a reference for the back springs.

Did anyone find out what stock measurement in the rear is?
