restoring jeep to stock suspension

what all is involved in removing a 3" suspension lift and restoring it to stock? I run 30"s on there and bought it with this suspension lift already installed, so i dont really know much about it except to say that i dont need that high of a lift.

is it really involved to return the suspension to stock?

pricey?

yaaaay, I got another return to stock!! Im not alone now!!

you'll probably need a new track bar which is 90 bucks at auto zone, new end links which were around 30 for the pair, alignment. Do you have stock springs? If you have a tcase drop now, you'll need stock bolts for it because you wont need the drop. the rear track bar probably has a bracket and it can go back to the original spot. if you have aftermarket shocks, I bought Monroe shocks for around 80 for 4 and rides better.

I bought some Monroe shocks because I hated the way the RE shocks rode. If you can get a set of stock springs you'll be all set. Im not sure if you have an adj track bar or the stock tb that was relocated now. Im not sure if your near NY, but I have a couple sets of stock springs and a few set of Rubi coils laying in the garage. As much as I hate to see my Jeep with no lift anymore, it rides 100% better
