Front. Remove upper and lower bj nut, remove tre nut, bfh all 3 joints, spindle is off. Swap hub to stock spindle.
Rear. Remove 8 u bolt nuts, pull block, install shorter u bolts if necessary.
Pretty simple

do as brandon said.. youll be fine.. since it's relatively new and you probably have zero rust, should be easy as hell.. set aside a good amount of time one day ~3hours just so you double check everything.. take your time, learn a bit.. i'm in the same boat as you.. extra time helps you learn

How come your deciding to remove everything.
I never installed the UCA's, so it wont align properly. I heard others have perfectly fine. Just feel like going back down. I may get some 5100's and set it at .85" for a little bit of squat!

Why not just buy UCA's instead of undoing everything you've accomplished thusfar??? Not poking fun, just curious.

My wife's Tahoe barely fell into spec on the alignment rack. Although it was within spec, the cam-plates were maxed out! That alone was enough to convince me that I needed the UCA's.

I have them, they're just sitting in my closet... lol! Just not really what I want at this point, I just miss the smooth ride while it was leveled.

Im in Granbury, southwest of Fort Worth! I may try and put the UCA's on and see how it rides, and from there, I will make my decision!
