Going Down

Tom the new guy here with my new to me 2005,
I bought it with a 3" suspension lift and 2"body spacers. I am planning to take the spacers out and lower it a little and find some smaller tires & wheels. After inspecting things I noticed on the steering shaft below the knuckle there is a bearing in a frame looking piece of metal with a 1" square piece of stock holding it up as if it is a spacer, is this for the body lift and if so when I take the body spacers out can I / should take that spacer out from the steering knuckle support also?
thanks
Tom

Yes, what your describing sounds like part of the body lift. If you're removing the body lift, then that would need to come out too.

Remove the steering spacer brace.
