Measuring my old lift height

Hey guys, I just installed 4 bilstein 5100's and was wondering where i can measure to see how much lift i have left. I noticed an increase from the tire to the well but the front is higher than the back. I have a 3" pro comp lift from 2006. My old shocks were completely shot. You can push them all the way in easily with zero recoil. Im worried riding around with basically no shocks for awhile has causes the coils to sag.

So my question: where do i measure to see how much lift i have?(axle to ground, tire to well, well to the ground etc?)

Thanks for the help,

I think factory at the front is 18" from the center of the hub to the bottom of the wheel well. Might want do do a search to confirm though.

^hes right. 18" from center of hub to the edge of the wheel well is factory height. 19" is upcountry height.

Reliability is relative
