How do I measure my lift height?

So I am fixing up my trucks suspension and I was told that I needed new shocks. The problem is that I don't know my specific lift height as I bought my truck already lifted. I was looking at some shocks from ORW and I saw that the shocks are height specific. How can I tell which shocks to get? I've got a 97 ranger 2wd reg cab.

Easy way would be to measure the shocks that are currently on the truck. Measure the extended and collapsed length and you should be good to go. If not post some pictures of your truck and the front suspension and we should be able to give you a better idea of how much lift.

Yeah. The easiest way would be to measure the shocks extended and collapsed lengths to make sure we get you the correct shocks for your lift. OR If there are any identifying numbers on the shock bodies that I could use to help cross reference.
