Before u do this look at the radiator hoses and the fan,the gas filler hose for the gas tank,the steering linkage,tranny linkage and the exhaust manifold,and the brake lines,tires might be over sized too.Because all of these had to be modified when the body was lifted, after u have looked at this an disconnected the necessary ones then and only then u can remove the lift kit,you will need a floor jack and a couple blocks of wood,start by find all your bolts for this you should find depending on the lift kit,neoprene spacers between your body a frame,u will have to go to the dealer to purchase rubber grommets and shorter bolts to replace the spacers,and bolts,u will be taking out , after u have done this start loosening the bolts have your jack ready so u can lift up the body just enough so u can get the spacer out,depending on size of truck u will have 6 to 8 bolts,if your lift kit is higher than 3 in u might want to get two jacks one on the front end and one on the back so u don't bend the body and put unnecessary stress on it and put your truck body down evenly,after u have removed the lift kit and put all your grommets and the new shorter bolts in then u get to reconnect all the things u had to undo at first,ie radiator hoses and the fan,the gas filler hose for the gas tank,the steering linkage,tranny linkage and the exhaust manifold, and the brake lines,tires might be over sized..hope this helps and good luck

How do I remove the body lift kit on a mercury mountaineer


First, make sure what type lift kit you have,,--- ONLY USE JACK STANDS TO SUSPEND A VEHICLE -- NEVER USE A JACK(S) -- TOO DANGEROUS!!! Removing each of them is a different direction...- Removing a suspension lift kit - jack up the body until the tires are off the ground..
Removing a body lift is a little more time consuming and difficult..
CONTACT your local off road shop,,, you need to "disconnect" the body from the frame, then remove the lift kit..visually double check all the bolts for wear.. replace ANY that have ANY damage...the local shop should have tips that will help...

How to change cab mount bushings


Remove Cab bolts and lift body with lift. If lift is not accessible then remove mount bolts on one side and jack with block of wood to reduce body damage possiblity (Use body line). Jack body just high enough to remove bushing. Use caution watch hands and avoid pinch points whenever possible.

I want a body lift for my truck


Do you have 4WD? Usually they dont have very many lift kits for 2WD. All they can give you really is longer leaf springs or blocks in the rear, and spring spacers or taller springs for the front.
As for 4WD, they have the same fittings for the rear, but the front theres a different set up.

The easiest lift kit is the body lift kit. You install rubber bushings between the body and the frame. Some trimming of the fan shroud and adjusting the steering shaft. A good kit will have in instructions.

2001 Tacoma 2-wheel dr, 5 lug wheels; I want to lift 2-3 inchs...no lift kits seem to be available. Dave


It would be best to only do a body lift kit if driving on the road.Suspension lift kits lead to a lot of tire wear problems and the truck will never drive right again.

Lift kit for a '95 2wd dodge dakota


I am pretty sure that there is a lift kit available for a 95 dakota. There are a few ways to lift the body of the vehicle. I know a few people who have done it with hockey pucks. Drill holes through the center of the hockey pucks and place them in the body mounts. However, if you want buy a real lift kit, there are several sites that sell lift kits. I recently put a 9" suspension lift on a 1977 F-150. Most companys that make the kits offer more for newer vehicles.
I am not sure if I am allowed to post other websites, however, I did search for a lift for a 95 dakota and found one right away. There are three types of lifts that you can do. One is very limited but you can get the truck taller by putting bigger tires on it. Doing this will give you less clearance between the top of the tire and the fender well. There are also body lifts and suspension lifts. Body lifts are less expensive as there are less components to install. Suspension lifts are much more expensive but it is what I would reccomend for a larger lift. For a couple inches I would go with the body lift. For anything over 2 to 3 inches I would reccomend a suspension lift. If you can find a body lift kit for a 95 dakota 4x4, then you can use it on a 2 wheel drive as well.
