body lift removal

as a new jeep owner, i'm learning things about my jeep everyday.... whoever i bought my tj from did all kinds of lift mods to it and it just sat too high for my liking. It has/had a 2.5 inch lift kit (springs, shocks), 2 inch spring spacers, and what looks to be 1 1/2-2 body lift. I removed the 2 in spring spacers and am wanting to remove the body lift. is there an easy way to do this? from what i've gathered on the forum, there are 8-10 "pucks" that would need to be taken out..... any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

I'm interested in this too. What company makes stock height body mounts/spacers?

I am kind of interested in this myself since mine came with a BL also. What I am wondering is if there are supposed to be some kind of factory spacer/body bushing reinstalled when I remove the pucks.

Most body lift's just set on top of the factory bushing . All you need to do is get shorter grade 8 bolts and cut down the two rubber bumpers under the grill.

If you don't have access to a car hoist then I would use a 2x4 cut to fit the length of the floor, behind the rocker panel. Set jack stands on blocks and use a floor jack to get the body high enough to slide the stands in to place under the 2x4. But be sure to loosen the bolts before you do this.
