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.

you would have to buy a whole new kit and then sell the old one. ( you could probably reuse the adj trac bar and drop pitman arm )

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
