    To disconnect the 4wd you need to remove the front driveshaft. The halfshafts (or CV shafts) must stay in.
    Lowering the suspension can be achieved by adjusting the the torsion bars.
    Truthfully I'd never recommend lowering a 4wd, this isnt because I'm a fan of 4X4's, the suspension on a 4wd just doesnt do well when you try to lower them. You'd be better off finding a 2wd and installing an airbag system. In the end I think you'll be happier with the ride and spend less money to get where you wanna be.
