How could I know what parts of my suspension are stock what parts aren't?

I bought my ZJ with a 3-3.5" lift installed on it. I have replaced the shocks with DT3000's and as far as I know, the coils are rancho. I don't know about the rest of the suspension (tie rods, control arms, and a lot of the other stuff that is replaced with a lift). How could I tell if those are all stock? My parents have a I6 ZJ just like mine, could I just go out there with a good ol' tape measure and see if they measure the same?

Just visually compare the parts.

They used the same suspension parts for the entire run of the model as far as I know.

What ever doesn't look similar on your jeep, you will know its been replaced.

The only real parts to compare would be the control arms and track bar.

If you have a digital cam you can post a pic and we can give you a quick answer.
