If Macchio is, in fact, 5'8.5" (which he does look in the photo with you, Rob), Zabka looks approximately 5'10" here. His posture is a tad straighter than Ralph's. Of course, we can't see the footwear...

No, just no. Ralph Macchio is bare minimum 5'9" (taller in the morning). William is at least 5'11". He lists himself as being over 6'0".

6’0” next to 5’10” Macchio

Only looks an inch or so over 5'8.5 Ralph Macchio these days. 5'10 - 5'10.25 these days. 5'10.5 would have been max for a peak height. 1/4'' loss is pretty common for 50's

Billy Zabka “looked taller” standing next to the 5’8” Keith Gordon in ‘Back to School’.

I have to say he is 5 feet 8 inches flat feet and in shoes yes maybe 5' 9" or 5'10" in shoes.That would make perfect sense putting Ralph Macchio's height at 5'6" flat feet and 5' 7 to 5' 8" with shoes. There is no way he is physically 5 feet 10 inches. Not to mention every where on the internet shows his height to be 5' 8 inches.

I don't know why it says everywhere else he's only 5' 8". When standing next to Martin Kove (who's 6' 1") he looks around 5' 10".

5ft 10.5 is fair for him.

He claimed 6'0" on his MySpace page when it was active but 5'10-5'10.5" sounds more accurate.

That half inch can be removed.

He looks barely taller than Macchio...

He certainly doesn't look like 6 feet, but under that.
