Just try to see if you can pull some #'s from the springs. There are a lot of smart members on here! Surely one can help you.

Obvious signs would be diffrent colored springs. C/C plates could be another give-away. Post some side shots, we might be able to tell.

My stock were black. I think my Eibach's were that color too. Had 'Eibach' in white, I'm pretty sure of.

yeah stock black and eibach black look nothing alike though(dull black/shiny black w/ numbers on it), slide under the back of the car and take a look at the springs, if it has a little paper tag on it pull it off, its a ford production tag and will tell you if its the stock springs based off the date code/part number.
either that or measure the ride height, anything more than 14" from fender to center of the hub is stock(measure this way to avoid accounting for sidewall height)
