you'd be wrong
astro/safari's were NEVER a full frame vehicle

awd 2wd swap

I'm just wondering if I can put 92 2 wd front end parts into a 97 awd to convert it into 2wd. Any ideas?

No, a-frames are different. What can be done is gut all of the AWD parts except for the outer stub axle, separate it from the CV joint and use it with the AWD hubs. The stub is needed to maintain the correct pre-load on the front wheel bearings. You will still be using the torsion bars, there are coil overs made for the Syclone/Typhoon to eliminate the torsion bars, they run somewhere around $700.
