What kind of lift is this?

Hey, guys. I've done some searching around, but the descriptions I've found aren't giving me the warm-fuzzy. I need new struts, and I'm trying to determine what my current lift is from. PO did it.

Struts are ProComp ES3000

Is this the normal bump stop, or is that a spacer?


Same here for the body mount.. is that a spacer, or normal?


And here's one showing the distance from the ground to the far back corner of the rear fender flare...26"


Appreciate any help!

The body mount is stock, no body lift. What are you referring to as the strut? The shock? More info or pics would help us tell you the size lift

Do these help? It's dark out there, so I just shot some pics w/ the flash. If I missed what you need, let me know.

Err.. yeah. Shocks. Struts on my dd. For clarity.. I think when you have struts there is no upper control arm? Is that the only difference?

Upper Control Arm:

Most likely a pro comp 2" spring lift. If you look on the shock you should be able to find a PN. Look it up on here to find out the length. then buy the brand you want in that length.

I think struts are only on independent suspensions...

Search ORI struts. Some interesting looking jeep builds (solid axle) have used them.

You may want to measure the spring height that would give us a good estimate of how much lift. Why do yo need to replace the shocks? If it rides rough that may be numerous things or are they leaking?

It rides very rough, and the back right one just clanks around on every bump. I feel like I have nearly no suspension at all. I'm planning on new springs and shocks. I'm open to replacing other suspension components while I'm at it...any suggestions? This is all on road. I'm going for stance and ride comfort.
