Changing 94 Suburban torsion suspension to solid front axle

What all would I need to do to change my 94 Suburban's torsion suspension to a solid front axle setup?

you might check to see if a 3/4ton model had the solid axle front end, if not your best bet would be to find a older suburban and cut the frame just behind the suspension and haul the whole thing home for a blueprint, the spring hangers, shackles, and all of the other bits and pieces may be a close fit, but if no 94's were produced with solid axles you will find it to be a lot of work to convert torsion bars to solid axle,
just for curiosity why would you want to do that the torsion suspension rides a lot better and handles better than any solid axle.

life begins when the kids leave home and the dog dies.

Just looking at suspension options because I do plan to lift it and it costs a good bit to lift with a torsion setup.
