Please don't use profanity. You can get your thoughts across without it. Sounds like you'll have to replace the exhaust system. Complete with the hangers. That's really no big deal. If you have to replace the catalytic converter be sure you check the emissions decal under the hood and see if you have Federal Emissions or California Emissions. With the converter it makes a difference. As far as it being lowered I'm not sure what's involved to put it back to original. Perhaps someone else can chime in on that part? HTH. -Jim

you might be better off to ask a muffler shop who bends and builds exhaust systems ,preferably not the big chain shops ,they can see what can be saved and add to it. they'll also see what lowering maneuvering was done,

The lowering part might require you to pick up some new or used stock springs and other suspension components.

You have to see how they lowered it first. Typically people use blocks in the rear and all you would have to do is remove them to make the back normal. The front will either use a coil or spindle to lower it, you would have to replace which ever one they used to stock. As far as the exhaust, take it to a muffler shop.
