Removing levelig kit???
 
I had a local shop install my leveling kit when I got my exhaust done so I have no clue what it took to do and was wondering if it would be hard to remove myself? Thanks. Oh I have a hammer, hacksaw, some duct tape and cloths pins. Is there any other tools I would need?

It's not hard at all. The only thing you will need that's not in a normal persons tool box is a 30mm deep socket for the bottom strut bolt.

Also a coil spring compressor.

Why are you removing it?

Putting front back to stock height and removing rear block to level it that way instead. Got some new rims (2013 Lariat Limited 22s) to put on it.

A leveling kit goes on top of the strut pack. No spring compressor needed, as you do not have to disassemble the strut pack. Just remove and replace.

Hope this helps out... Took a friend and I about 2hours to install my 2.5" kit. The second side will go much faster that the first.

It was the same way for me. 2.5 hours on the driver side and 30 minutes for the passenger side. It's like a crazy puzzle. But once you have one side done the second is easy.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I talked to the shop that did it and they hooked me up. 100 bucks cash removed the leveling kit and the rear blocks at the same time to "level down" and one of the mechanics bought my front kit for 50 bucks while I was there.
