Stock J10 height

Can someone with a completely stock suspension take a measurement for me from the frame right behind the front tire to the top of the axle housing.I never thought to take one before all my work and would like to see just how much lift I have .

If you can just measure it from the axle tube to the frame would be great.Front or back or both would make it nice.

Front:
DS 4 3/4"
PS 4 7/8"

Rear:
DS 5 3/8"
PS 5 3/4"

Measurements are from the top of the axle tube to the bottom of the frame rail. Fronts were a little harder to get exact with the bumper up there and the u-bolt pads on the PS. Rear PS has a helper spring on it from the PO. Must have had an extra load over there for some reason.
