Need to rebuild or replace

I have a 2004 F250 SD 6.0 PSD CC Lariat, lifted approximately an 8" lift on 20" wheels and 37" tires. It has fabtech hoops running dual fox shocks up front and singles in the rear. Going to verify the lifted height tomorrow with the stock height vs lifted height. Can someone post the stock height of this truck? I saw it in a previous post but if someone could give me a shortcut it would save time.
Anyways, my shocks are blown out. I can see the oil leaking out of the shocks and it rides like ****, even for a lifted truck. I am pretty sure the previous owner lifted it without the correct sized shocks. The truck has add-a-leaf in the front and blocks in the back. For this much lift, who offers a good set of replacement shocks? Where is the part number stamped on the fox shocks? Pics below. I need to either rebuild the Fox shocks or replace them. I have a 2,200 mile round trip coming up soon and need to fix this issue. It is driving me nuts!
