P/o installed a 3" body lift... -_- and I would like to replace it with 1.25. And add suspension

What is the best method to replace it with a shorter one. I've heard of just jacking up the body and going in a circle.

I have a In ground lift, anyway to use that?

U could use the inground by lifting it a foot or so off the ground then block the body and slightly lower the chassis.

I would use the floor jack and just work your way around. Seems easier to me.

Normally it's done one side at a time. Just follow the directions on the 1.25" bl you're buying.

Yeah what he said ^^. Loosen up all the bolts on both sides but dont remove the bolts. then slightly lift 1 side and remove those bolts. Then slide out those pucks and slide in the new pucks and Install those bolts but dont tighten them . Lower the body onto the new pucks. then do the other side the same way. Then tighten all the bolts.

Sounds like that would work good

People may not entirely agree with me, but i know a bunch of people have cut their larger body lifts down to the size they want and just buying shorter hardware. especially if you want to also have seat risers. Just a cheaper alternitive.
