Welcome. We are locals!

Easiest thing to do is take a whole bunch of photos of what you have. Try and frame:

Underbelly skidplate
Control arms (full shot and of the ends)
Front steering links from ground level between the tires
Springs
etc..

post them up and we will be glad you help you out.

Measure spring mount to spring mount.
Compare with stock.

I would, but that picture was from 3 years ago before I put my lift on. They are the only referance numbers I have. Sorry.
