Going back to v4 extruder

Could use little help; bought a used m2 rev d with v4 hotbed; the person I bought it from installed a different extruder, but I would like to go back to the original makergear one. Is it as simple as reinstalling the extruder and flashing the firmware to rev d?

Thanks!

Quick Stepper motor questions

I have 2 quick questions about the stepper motors:

1. My X-axis motor is a little squeaky lately. Am I able to grease or oil it?

#2 I added dampeners to my x and y axis motors; am I able to add one to the extruder motor? Would that help at all?

Setting in S3D to raise/lower bed on startup?

I know I have read it before, but cannot for the life of me find it

I read you get the bed close to the nozzle, then use a setting in S3d to fine tune it

Which setting is that?
