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!!

pretty much. Its gonna suck breakin all those bolts lose and stuff. Go to the fabtech website or email them to get the instructions for the kit and just reverse them. I have emailed fabtech plenty of times and they are very helpful and respond quickly.

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