Taking off a big lift

I'm looking to get my first powerstroke. I found a 6.4 I really like but its got a 6" lift on it and I really don't want it that tall. I would rather run 35" in stead and save a little gas.

What would be involved if I took it down to a 4" lift or leveled. What would I have to buy basically.

It's possible, but it all depends what "brand" is on there and you might have to mess with other things like driveshafts and carrier bearings.....of course you could always try to find a member with a stock truck on here and see if they are willing to switch straight up or for a lil $$$ their setup for yours and then you can just throw a spacer up front, put some 35's on there and call it day with lil to no money out of pocket
