Anyone gor from 8" lift to 6"? Whats needed????

As it says... I am looking to go to a 6" or maybe a 4", so I can go to 35" tires... 37's just getting too hard to find/expensive... So my question is what can still be used...
I have an 8" BDS kit... its leafs in front, and blocks in back... so I know I will need new blocks, prolly shocks... Leafs in front, but heres my prob... Do I need a new pitman arm? Sway bar mounts/ drop mounts? Also, looks like my front has dropped front spring mount...

I tried calling BDS, they gave number to installer who was just quoting me new parts, not really trying to salvage/use any of my existing...

Buddy of mine just went from a 9 inch down to a 6 inch, but this was in a chevy and body lift removal. Im gonna say you might need a new pitman arm. You should hit up some of your local installers and ask them. Hopefully their cool enough and try to give you the info you need.
