I don't know what happened there hahaha.. I'm just wondering when I remove the lift what I actually need to have to put it to stock . It came with the lift so I didn't put it on. When I look at it it just looks like if I remove the lift all I need is stock shocks

You need stock length shocks, sway bar links and steering knuckles. I've got a pair of knuckles here off my old truck but I have no idea what shipping would be like!

gotcha, you could just regear that will help your milage, I got 2 MPG back after my lift and 33s with 4.56 gears but it depends if you do primarily city or hiway driving.

let me know if you need a hand rounding up any parts or taking the lift off.

Cool, assuming everything works well the its about 8 hours to install or remove a superlift in a garage, faster with a lift but its all fairly strait forward.

well, the kit is $1200-$1500. if its installed on the truck its used so cut that in half.
myself id post up something like "trade for stock components and $500."

There are actually three kit involved in the complete lift or two depending on how you want to look at it.
I believe you can get them separately if you wanted so the $1700 isn’t a bad estimate.
When I did mine a while back $1700 was the best I could find for the complete setup.

Not saying what to charge but if you can get the truck on the ground with OEM Parts and have 5 bills in your pocket I would take it.
Maybe start at $650 and swap parts, work the price to fit the situation.
On the other hand swapping parts means the other guy needs to be close and that decreases the selling market.

Sorry for the bad estimate. Another factor too is if that person helps. I'd be willing to fling a wrench and install/replace parts for a discount. $650 sounds fair and if wrench time happens knock off some coin.

If it's a dual cardan style at the transfer case it's like a Superlift shaft. If it's a CV joint there it'll be a stock one.
