Lift blocks???

Hi guys I'm new here but have had my 7.3 for 4 years now. I have a late 99 ext cab sb auto. I have no idea what lift is on it. I have 3.73 in rear and a custom driveline with stage 3 tranny and multiple motor upgrades. My ? Is my springs are worn out now and I was gonna buy just a replacement lift but idk which one. What's throwing me off is I can clear 35's on factory 16's but I have 5.5" blocks in the rear that are ?welded? To the axle. Does this seem right and what lift do you all think it is?
Thanks,
Matthew

Not common to weld the blocks to the rear axle but with 5" blocks I would guess it's a 6" lift.

So if it is a 6" lift how would I know for sure? And that would mean my springs are way worn out. But I don't have a trac bar bracket?

So is there anybody that can answer the question on why I have 5.5" blocks. I don't have the drop bracket for the drag link but I think factory tire size was 235/75/16 can any body help?
