Question Which lift do I have?

I just bought a 2004 F250 FX4 with a lift and I have no idea what it is. It looks like something around the 3"-5" area. The lift is a Rancho. Any idea how to tell which it is?

Is there any way to tell by looking for a model number on the shocks? I know they are Rancho 5000.

Measure the shock mounting bolts center to center with the truck on the ground and I can tell you.

Just measured it and from the top mounting bolt to the bottom mounting bolt on the shock on the driver side front is 21". Truck was sitting in my garage on level concrete floor. Dont know if it makes a differece but it has 16" rims with 35" tires.
