How to find a type of lift? HELP

Hey everyone! I need a little help determining the type of lift I have. I'm new to jeeps and learning about vehicles in general so don't roast me if I lack any knowledge on the matter. I bought the JK already lifted, it has skyjacker shocks, a rear track bar relocation bracket that looks to be welded on to the diff, and the coil springs measure out to stock height when on a flat ground. I'm uncertain of the lift height but it looks to be around 2-3 inches if I had to guess. I plan on cutting the rear track bar relocation bracket off and getting a clean slate on the suspension so I know what upgrades may be needed in the future. But before I do this, what other components should I check that could also be lifting the jeep? thanks!

Are you going back to "stock"? Pics usually always help and if on stock springs u either have a spacer lift and possibly a body lift combo or just spacers. Get better shocks

If your plan on a lift might make sense to keep the bracket since you will need something to address the rear trac bar.

Good luck with the new ride

Post #4. That's how to measure actual lift.

When you say on flat ground, your springs measure stock, that doesn't necessarily tell you anything. You could have 2 1/2" of spacers under the springs (I do).

Here’s a few pics of the bracket, the connection to the diff, a bump stop bracket, and what I assume is a coil spring spacer, I guess the real question is if I wanted to install a suspension lift, I could just keep that bracket on right? I wanted to clean the look up a bit because it all is pretty rusty, but I don’t wanna do more work than I have to. My original plan was to just get the suspension back to stock so I had a clean slate to work with and know for sure what size my lift is if I installed a new one myself, but I don’t know what all of the components are on this lift that I’d need to remove so it won’t conflict with the new lift. as I said before I’m fairly new to jeeps and vehicles in general lol
