Want to return truck to stock height...

Hello Everyone,

I just picked up a 2002 Dutchmen 5th-wheel for a stellar price and need to return my truck to stock height. The lift kit appears to be a Fabtech 6" Basic kit. How do I go about removing the lift kit? Is it as simple as springs, shocks, and removing the blocks in the rear? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

You will probably also need a factory trackbar bracket, factory pitman arm and factory sway bar links.
