Default Precedent Lift back to stock

I have an 06 precedent gas that previous owner built his own lift from aluminum stock. It looks like the original front suspension is all in place, but was moved forward and lower to life the front end. As for the back, looks like traditional block to lift but could be a drop spindle. I cannot tell.

Does anyone have a few good pics of stock suspension mounts so I can see sizes of parts compared to mine? I want to return. To stock height for now and need to identify what I am missing and may need to revert. I couldn't find a good picture online or in here for that.

I will post pics of mine later for reference

This is the lift. It appears they used aluminum stock to lower the stock mounting point to raise the front end. Looks like it would go right back to stock location, but I don't know if it's all there correctly.

I can't find a good picture of the rear online to understand why the rear is raised so much. I see no lift blocks. Im assuming they flipped the leaf springs under the axle to lift? Anyone can help me understand before I start spending money on replacement parts.

On the rear it may be they put longer shackles on the back end of the springs to gain the lift, as well they look like HD springs which may have more arch than stock, but where the spring attaches to the very back of the cart, check the 2 plates sandwiching the springs on each side to see if they are longer than 3". Or post up a picture back there so we can verify.

Also, if you are going back stock, from the looks of one of your pictures, they have reworked the steering shaft (looks like they made a pipe extension), so you may be dealing with changing that out as well.

I saw some similar things. I knew the steering was extended and figured the rear shackles were longer.

By the time I redo all of that, buy new shackles, and all probably be better to just get a normal lift to put on versus going back to stock.

Do these pics help?

Your first 2 pictures kind of show the rear shackle (where the bolt is at the end of the spring) - the shackle is between the frame and very end of the rear of the spring) which looks like a single pc shackle versus the stock double plate shackles. So, most likely it's longer. I agree with you that you're most likely better off buying a reputable lift and changing it out. One last thing, is it looks like they put longer rear shocks on too...which may or may not work with a new lift kit, as they usually put the axle under the springs.
