Resetting current lift to stock

What up TWM's. Currently I have a spacer lift in the front and blocks in the back and would like to set everything back to stock. I am ordering the 5100's/5125's kit and would like to know if I'll be needing some oem parts in order to complete this job correctly. It also has differential drop spacers. Does that mean I will need shorter bolt's, it seems logical but I really have no clue. I bought the truck like this so I don't know what was done. Perhaps it would be easier if someone took a look unless any of you have done something like this before. To make things a little more appealing if anyone is willing to give me a hand uninstalling the current lift and re installing a bilstein ride height in turn for some pizza and brew's... Any info on this would be much appreciated thank you.

Thank you guys for the offer to help me out, the new shocks wont be in till Monday, and im going to try and jump on the March 23-25th mod day band wagon to get it done. Which i really hope works out id like to start meeting some members of the TW community.
I've done a little more research and have come to these conclusions. The spacer lift i have is a 3" Revtek spacer kit. That being said i feel that i would need to purchase new Top Plates and upper spring seats isolators in order to remove these spacer and set the front suspension back to a stock setting.
If anyone feels that i do not need to buy these parts please!! dont hesitate to input any opinions, facts or ideas. If someone thinks a picture would help ill find a way to upload it.
As for the differential drop kit, removing them would mean i would need to replace those bolts with OEM bolts.
And removing the rear 2" blocks and setting that back to stock would not require new Ubolts but possibly a new leaf spring center bolt correct?
Geeze i feel so incompetent, i dont know if im using the right terminology for the parts i am describing, please correct me if im wrong.

You should be able to disassemble the coil over remove the spacer and re assemble with no needed parts. As far as the rear depends on how much thread is on the ubolts. You might get away with using them. Might just have to cut them shorter when installed not sure without looking at them. No need for a new spring center pin. You do not change it when adding a block

I would assume that it is longer to accommodate the 1" drop. Not sure if it is to long to reuse with out the spacer or not. You could try to reuse it and if it will not work run to lowes or ace and match it up.
