Just bought a used JK, Mopar lift question

Hey guys, old member here back with a new to me 2013 2 door sport. I picked it up last weekend and have already put some money and work into it. It came with a Mopar lift in it already but dont know what size. My buddy whos got a crazy jeep said he thinks its around a 3.5" lift. Well anyway yesterday me and a friend installed the AEV high steer kit and a new tierod. While doing the install we noticed something weird. Theres a fabric strap thats attached to the top of the front pumpkin and is connected to either the frame or some kind of arm. my buddy noticed it and i looked briefly. Anyone have a clue what it is? Also is there a way to determine which lift i have? the coils are sagging so im gonna order new metalcloke coils and new shocks. I just need to know which ones to order. Thanks

I have heard about Center Limiting Straps, used on TJ's. It helps to keep the front suspension from falling apart when extended too far down/out.

Do these look similar?
