Help me identify how much of a lift this is and who made it

So I just bought my first superduty - its a 2002. It came lifted, the previous owner (who didnt install it) thought its a 6". Im trying to find out if it is, because while the front was lifted right, the rear is on stacked blocks which I want to pull out and replace with springs. But cant buy the springs without having an idea of how big to get

So - what do you think? 4" or 6"? What can I do to identify who made the lift?

Shot of the front:



Shot of the whole vehicle:



Shot of the shocks (are these any good or should I replace em?)

Im going to run out there tomorrow with my good camera and take some detailed pics of the front and rear springs, blocks, drop arms, etc to help to identify it.

I have a Procomp 5" lift and 35" tire on my 05. I swapped out the stacked rear blocks for some 5" lift springs with no blocks from Donahoe Racing which is now Icon Vehicle Dynamics.

Leaf vs coil. Totally different setups Leafs were either 4 or 6.

His does look a touch over 4 from the stance of the truck. I'm thinkin it's just a 4 though, you can fit 35's with a leveling kit so...

Ill have to take a picture with me standing next to it for size comparison. I'm 6'4" and have to climb up to get in the truck. BTW I love this truck, and the ride hight is perfect IMO - but I have to get those blocks out of the back, it just makes the ride quality that of a pogo stick Not that a truck this big would have the ride of my car, but you know what I mean.

Well, at 6' with a leveling kit I kinda gotta hop to get in mine. After comparing your pics to the other dude with a 4 inch, I'd think you've definately got a 4. So now just to figure out who made it lol.

yeah Im 6'1 and bought my 2000 with a 4" on 33's and kinda had to jump in it, and mine was about the same stance as your except 1" lower due to tire size...that's a 4"....look into softride springs, or deaver or icon springs, they ride so awesome you'll love em. or just get one single 4" block and be happy....
