Post Trying to figure out which lift I have

I bought my Jeep with a small lift already installed and the previous owner said it was "about 4 inches". Apparently all he knew was what someone told him about it. I haven't looked the lift over closely but by comparing it to my uncle's stock height 83 it sits about 2 inches higher with the same size tires. (same number size but there could be some variance there) All 4 springs have been replaced and the shackles are 3/4" longer than the 83 shackles. The shackles also have a third bolt between the two mounting bolts. (for strength?) there are also degree shims between the springs and the axles. I know this is a shot in the dark but is there anything I may be able to look for to help identify which lift I have?
