Need to switch lifts. Help!!

As some of you know I put my truck up for sale awhile ago. I ended up deciding to sell it to my mother as she needs a tow rig. The only problem is that my truck has an 8" Donahoe lift on it, and she wants it lower. Is there anyway to lower it cheaper than to buy another kit? I still want to be able to fit the 37's so I dont have to buy other tires.

Anyone wanna come to Seattle and trade a lower lift for mine?

Do you have a full spring kit in it? or do you have any blocks in the lift.

It is full spring. Still uses factory blocks though I think.

Looks like you have to do it the hard way then, if you just pull the back blocks it will sit nose high.

Looks like im just putting it all back to stock. Any ideas what I could get for a slightly used 8" full spring Donahoe Lift kit?

A 4 inch lift kit is what you need. 35" tires will fit on a stock truck but ideally a 3-4 inch lift would work (with 37's). It wont have much flex but that'll lower down the truck for her.
