Ok, I feel dumb. Been away from the sport for a few years. Bought the 700 new in 2008. Told them to put a 2" lift on. Now I can't remember if I ever had it removed when it was in for service (I'll be doing everything myself now that I have a bit more time). I do want to ditch the lift. Is it simply a matter of removing these "brackets"? thank you!

Yes. Those are 2" lift brackets. Simple to remove and reinstall at any time should you feel the need.

Dezz, is it as simple as jacking the grizzly up, taking off the bracket, and re bolting the shock back in place? Anything I should know? Should wheel be off to make it easier lift entire thing back into place or is this not an issue? will shock be under any compression when I unbolt? (I wouldn't think so if I have the wheels off the ground)
sorry for all the questions, never did this before obviously and I don't want a situation where I can't get it back in place

Very simple. Just remove the bolts holding the bracket on, place the eye of the shock back into the original mount, reinstall bolt and tighten down.
You have to have it jacked up, and it's easiest with the tire off.

went well yesterday Dezz. I didn't know if the suspension would drop down once the shock was freed up, like when working on a car (I realize now that the components just aren't heavy enough to cause that to happen). Those little brackets seemed a little flimsy, glad they're gone. Grizz handling better now.
