Simple quick question regarding lifts and shock replacment

When I purchased the Jeep, it had a lift on it, superlift, I think. I can't find anyway to tell. Anyway, It's either a 3" or 4" lift. again, can't remember. I'm looking at replacing the shocks, and looking at the SkyJacker 7000's for a much softer ride (hopefully). well, they come in 0 lift, 1" to 3" lift, and 4" lift.

Since I don't exactly if its a 3" or 4" lift, which ones would safer to go for, the ones for the 1" to 3" lift, or the ones for the 4" lift. Would it make that much difference if I have a 3" lift and got the ones for the 4" lift, or vise versa.

Or, anyone can give me an idea to tell exactly how high the lift is.

Thanks in advance....

What I would do is measure the distance from lower shock bolt to upper shock bolt and look at their list and pick one from there.

I'll check and see. I didn't know if it was something that simple or if it really mattered if I got the 4" shock and the lift was 3". Thanks Ibuildembig!
