Default Curious about bagging my 4x4?

I'm toying with the idea of bagging my Blazer at some point. I want the stock ride height while I'm driving around, but when I park it, I would love to have it drop 2or3 inches all around (so I won't have to worry about binding CV joints since the truck won't be moving when it's low)

Also, how's the ride on airbags? (Calling packofqtips)

Now, one question is, would this render the torsion bars useless? and the fact they support the front's weight, would I have to back them right off and let the bags do the work to be able to have the drop in the parking lot?

Do the front and rear have the same travel? I would like it to be level when it's dropped but it's the same thing with the rear leafs... The shocks have nothing to do with supporting the rear, so would I be looking at custom swingarms in place of the leaf springs?

Thanks for any input, if this is too much $$$ (which it probably will be) I don't think I'll be doing it... maybe on a future vehicle or after school when I have cash to waste.

I tend to avoid doing overly pricey mods since I'll never see that cash again.
