    I am considering gong back to SL, at least for now.

    Is there anyway to go back without a clean erase?

    Only if you made a backup when SL had been in use with Time Machine or another similar utility. If not, I'm afraid there isn't.

    If you do have a backup, you should be able to restart and hold the [option] key and select the Lion recovery partition. Then select 'restore from backup.'
