Default 1981 k5 turn around!! help!!

i just recently bought a 1981 k5 blazer 4x4 the thing is im stuck i want to make it a 2wd lowered more of my style. i have a complete swb frame at the shop curious if it will fit? what type of modifications will i need to do or should i just keep it a 4x4 ?? open to any questions or comments just need feedback please


also possibly put air bags on it will that make things better or worse?

In my opinion I would lift a K5 but I will admit I do want to lower my S10.

I don't think I have ever seen a lowered K5 though.
