Your discs look great. Will make a big difference both in time and working your tractor. Your only a couple of feet shy of a set of Ferguson farm discs we had. Dad started farming with a set of 8 ft discs.

Awesome build! One cylinder connected to two risers, one from each wing should do it. If it raises one side faster than the other it wouldn't matter, as once one reached top, then the other would follow. Cheaper with just one cylinder. You'd just need to know what length cylinder you'd be using, then make the risers the right length so the wings would bottom & top just right.

What I was meaning was for the hydraulic cylinder to attach directly to the risers, each riser being around 1' tall. The cylinder would just mount simply between the risers.

You would have to get the height of the risers "just right" for it to work, but it will work. You'd likely need a 20 to 24" stroke cylinder.
Each riser would need a "stop block" at full lift position, so one side wouldn't "over center".
