Removing 3in body lift HELP

So im looking to downsize to a 1 inch bl or remove my 3 in bl completely. Problem is im 16 and new to this stuff so i pretty much dont know what im doing. I know how to do it, but with a 3in bl there had to be some mods to the steering linkage, gas filler tube, tc linkage, and some others. I need some help on what i should look for and how to fix it. Pictures would be much appreciated!

There should be a block under a joint on your steering shaft i forgot what its called. filler tube will need to be shortened, radiator drop brackets removed and i think thats it if i remember.

Your best bet is go to the link below and reverse the steps. Then use second link to install the 1" lift. You can trim the 3" down and just buy new bolts to save money.

the front core supports would have to go as well

pics would help us help you as there are many different kits and almost every company goes about all the side stuff differently

Don't forget the shifter extensions.

Buy new mounting bolts. Length depends on if you are going back to stock or keeping the 1" BL.

Ive looked around, and ive found some things. i have some pics but i cant upload them because of the post and membership thing. on the radiator there are 4 brackets ill have to take off, and move up to factory holes. the steering linkage looks like it has a little block under the bracket. the gas filler tube has a 3 inch extension in it (its been cut and inserted, do i have to get a new hose?). The tc linkage has a little bracket also that i just have to take off. anything else i should look for?

the easiest way to add photos is to upload them to photobucket, or similar, and throw the img link in here

what you described comes with every BL, tall or short, without seeing what you have, there is no way to tell you how to use it
