Take body lift off of 1985 4runner

    First Name:

    I have a 1985 4Runner with a suspension lift (Chevy Springs) and a body lift. It is running 33 X 12.5 mud tires.

    I also have a 3rd gen 6cyl 4WD. So, I have decided to take the body lift kit off of the 85, put some more streetable tires on it, and assign it for general family extra-car transportation.

    I did not do the body lift. It was already lifted when I bought it. So I am not sure exactly what the reversal process will entail.

    I would like to gather all of the procedure information and parts that I can so that I can do it all in one shot without having to stretch the job out and have a disabled vehicle in the way. My kids are of driving age and living at home while they are in community college so we have a lot of vehicles in the driveway and limited space.

    I assume that I will need stock body bolts and mounts. I think I also have to adjust the steering column height, do something with the shifter mounting or boots, or something, etc...

    I would really appreciate help with what all needs to be done and where GOOD parts can be sourced. I can find all kinds of information on the web about lifting. But not any info about bringing it back down.
