Going from 3" to 1.25" body lift. Easy as just changing blocks?

I have a question fo rthe masses. Before I deployed, I bought a 97 TJ that has either a 3.5 or 4" teraflex suspension lift on it and a 3" BL. I want to bring the BL down to 1.25". Do I just replace the 3" blocks with the 1.25" blocks and hardware? I'm guessing there is some linkage adjustment as well.... manual tranny.

Glad you are lowering it back down. Yep, the hardware is all you will need to do as far as the lift. You may need to adjust the transfer case linkage or fan shroud, but you will be able to tell if those need work after you lower the body. Thank you for your service!

2 things you need to check as you lower
1.your gas filler tube may have to be cut.
2.there is a steering linkage relocation bracket that may have to removed.

I JUST did this to my jeep. Most likely going to have to take tcase extension off and take off fan shroud if you have a 1" mml you can bolt back to original holes. Fuel filler hose needs to be cut down and there is an extension for the steering shaft that will need removed also.
