Looking to go back to stock height down from my icon 4.5" lift. When I had the lift installed, the company never gave me my old parts back. What I need to know is what all do I need to go back to a stock f250 height, and will I be able to use the icon shocks I already have? Does anyone want to sell me there stock setup? Thanks

Need for speed! Tired of messing the truck up mudding. And I'm the kind of person the usually uses their lift for offroad purposes. Sense I'm stopping the mudding I have no need for the extra air mass and heavy tires

Off the top of my head, you'll need springs, track bar, stock rear blocks and u-bolts, and stock steering stabilizer (unless you have the dual setup). If you have the icon alignment cams you'll have to take them out and the radius arm drop brackets. I'm pretty sure you'll have to take out the shocks...the ones for the 2.5 inch kit might work but don't quote me.

Why don't you just find somebody that wants your lift and trade them for their stock parts and some cash since the lift is worth more?

How soon are you looking to do this? I live in the Houston area and currently looking to lift my truck, by the time I purchase the lift and install it we're looking at about two weeks or so. I would definitely be interested in selling the stock stuff.

I might be interested in the lift but right now I am looking at the Icon 2.5 due to the fact I am running 35's on factory 20's and I'm afraid the Icon 4.5 will look funny. I plan to have it lifted in the next few weeks so if you don't find anything let me know, I would be happy to get rid of the stock stuff. Also, give me first dibs and a price for your lift if you want to sell it, for the right price the 4.5 may be more tempting.

Sounds good, when you get a price can you also send me a full size pic? It's hard to see the lift and wheel combo in the small pic.

im pretty much trying to stop my habits of offroading. I have no desire to mud with my truck anymore so i see no point of me having a lift. lower suspension and smaller tires will help me reach higher speeds on the drag strip as well as give me better mileage. Id rather not spend $400+ a tire for something that i really wont use anymore.
