Yes...another lift question

Newb here...
I am trying to get a grip on exactly how high of a lift my Jeep has on it. I measured the leaf springs on my 08 Jeep X: 13 3/8 +/- and my neighbors 08 Jeep Sahara: 9 3/8".
Now simple math tells me that it is 4" of lift...from all I've read. It may not be that easy...
Any thoughts...

you and yor neighbor have unusual jk lifts if they have leaf springs.....but yours does appear to be 4" taller if measured from the same spot. I like to use the front shock measurement. stock is 18.5" from bottom of the top mount where rubber meets the bottom of the shock tower to middle of bottom eyey
