removing lift

I'm looking at getting a new truck (05 F-250) but the one that I found that I like has a pro-comp 6" lift and it is to tall for me to tow my fifth wheel. I was wondering how hard it would be to take the lift off. I know that the rear would be easy because it is just a block. I'm just not positive what is removed and replaced with the front. Is it going to be as simple as removing the coils and replacing them with a set of stock coils and then leveling it or doing an Icaon 2.5 kit? Would it have a drop pitman arm or different track bar and would those need to be removed?

Thanks Rick

It should have a drop pitman arm, and drop track bar bracket..maybe a adj track bar also? For a Icon or equal 2.5" lift you need stock pitman arm, a adj track bar and correctly valved shocks the correct leanth.

everything looked like it was in good shape when I looked at it still trying to decide what I want to do. I will probably know what I'm going to do by the end of the week. I would also be looking to sell the lift. I will let you know.

Thanks Rick
