What is the distance from the top of the spring bracket to the underside of the frame [or snubber], front and rear on a 'stock' 73 or 74 with no suspension 'lift' added?

Not sure what you are looking for. The shackle would be a set length. The center (axle) to frame or snubber would vary greatly on spring age/sag

Since your truck has new suspension and you know how much advertised lift you installed, the dimensions I asked for will give me the information I need. thanks

ok i'll get you my dimensions. i put in an ironman spring set, and i think it was advertised as 2 inch lift, but it is about 6 inches taller than it was. i don't know how much it will settle, but it's got all the weight on it.

Well i guess I exaggerated a little. Looks a LOT higher.

Right now it is 3 1/2" in the front, and about 8" in the rear. That is without hood, fuel, windshield or side windows in the FRP top.

Thanks for that info. Your data gives a 'zero point' for a new truck with a "2 inch" lift. Those are the only measurements that don't vary with tire and wheel sizes, and thus allow comparison to see where mine is relative to new.
