Lift kit length and Coils

Bought a truck with a lift installed already and I am trying to figure out how big of a lift is on it. It has a Pro Comp shocks all around but without taking them off I cannot figure out how big of a lift it has. I measured the front coil compressed as the truck is siting and got 17.5" I was wondering if someone knew the stock coil length compressed as the truck sits. I have 20" Pro Comp wheels with 35"x12.5" Wrangler Duratraks on it. If someone could help me justify if I have a 4.5", 5", or 6" lift that would help. I am looking to bring the truck down a couple inches if possible.

2013 Ram 2500 Laramie Longhorn Limited

The truck for my avitar is the truck if the picture helps.

You could go to a parking lot, or maybe better yet, a dealer's lot, armed with a tape measure.
As long as you've measured yours on reasonably level ground, the measurements should be comparable.

I wouldn't worry about spring lengths, just fender lip to ground.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

'14 1500 V6, '17 3500 C&C, plus a '19 3500 6.4 in the household.
