What is the curb weight of most LWB c-10 trucks 1973-1987?
Does anybody know the curb weight of a 1978 chevy truck, c-10, lwb... i believe its 4000lbs... but on the tag inside the door it doesnt state the curb weight
my71 c10 2wd long bed with small block(all iron)/th350/12 bolt with a/c is 3950lbs
my 79 LB 2wd came in at 42xx with 2 tanks of fuel
An easy way to get curb weight is to
subtract the payload from the GVW
That year there were 3 different GVW 1/2 tons
4900-------3-4 leafs on rear springs----would have been shipped with G or H 78-15 tires
5600-------7 leafs on rear---no stabilizers --- standard brakes L-78-15
6100-------7 leafs---front stabilizer---HD front and rear brakes (rotors were thicker than the other trucks)
The 4900 trucks had very small payload capacity----around 500-600lb
5600 were closer to 1000lb
6100 could handle a 8-1/2ft cabover camper with no real issues.
ALL 4x4 trucks long and short had the 6100GVW
