Well,

After many years of lifted service, the blazer is back to stock height and running the stock gears.

I needed the gas mileage more these days...

The 5 1/2' susp lift and the rear axle / front diff (with 4.56 gears installed) were swapped out with stock parts.

Farewell mountain trails...

hello 20's

How hard was it to get it all back to stock height? I seem to remember having to cut a few pieces here and there when I installed my lift.
