I would consider replacing the rear air bags. They are cheap and somewhat easy to change. The conversion is expensive and not something you should try at home.

You need a lift to let the rear suspend.
Remove the air line connector from the air bag.

Pry up on the bag to unseat it from the differential. Remove the bag.

Make sure you turn off the air suspension before starting.
