Replacement shocks

I posted this in th 6.0l section since that is the only place i every read, new here, but guess I might get a faster answer here, anyhow I recently purchased a 2003 F250 6.0l psd from a dealer and it is lifted, they said it was 4" and me and all my buddies say 6", anyhow i see a very little bit of seepage from the left from shock and want to know which ones i will need going to replace all 4 but how do i know what shocks to get without taking the old front and rear ones off first then measuring them. Any help would be great

Looks like a 6" on 35's...

Not sure about the shocks. Welcome to the site though!

My guess is 6" lift also. Check my garage photo's and compare.
I would have guessed 35's also. I'm running 37's on 18"

6inch on 35's. and 4wheelparts has some really good deals on shocks, just order over the phone so you can tell them your lift size. however i've heard mixed things about them, some people have had problems and some people swear by them. me, i ordered my lift kit from 4wheelonline.com, because i had heard bad things about 4wheelparts.com. now it looks as if i'm getting screwed by 4wheelonline.com arrgggghhhhhhhhhh
sorry for the novel, but they have shocks for about 150, 4 shocks and a steering stab. for 150. not a bad deal.

hope this helps,
