Need Help From A Stock Height 6.0 Owner

I'm trying to find some new Bilstein shocks, but can't figure out which ones I need. I think I have a 4" lift, but I'm not sure because new coil springs were installed. Can someone with a stock 6.0 measure from the center of their wheel hub, to the opening of the front fender well? Same with the rear?

I'm within a quarter inch of these measurements on my early '04. Hope it helps.

Thanks guys, I appreciate your time. I'm at 29" in the front and 30" in the rear. So, looks like I have a 6" lift.
