How tall is my lift?

I purchased an open box fabtech lift for my truck. I was told that it is a 6" from who I bought it from. There are no markings on the springs as they were sent out to be powdercoated for a customer and the deal ended up falling through. I installed the leafs (its an all leaf kit) this weekend and it looks like its a lot taller then 6" Im thinking it is the fabtech 8" I was stupid and didnt measure before I put them in. Is there any measurement I can do now to find out? I need to know for ordering shocks and track bar parts.

I just went and measured from the axle tube to the frame front to back. Can somebody compare this and let me know what they think?

Front: 17 1/4"
Rear: 19 1/2"
