Yes, simple as getting new springs and shockers; then just pull the big fuse for the air compressor and it wontr make noise all the time; like it was never there; simple aye!
Springs could be anywhere form 100-200 a pair; shocks can be as much or as little as you want these days, BUT be warned you do get what you pay for.
I dont know anywhere in bris you can get them; bound to be somewhere, but if you have trouble getting good prices you could always contact Cam from High Tek Brakes in Moorabbin in Melb and they will do an awesome price and freight it up to you for little charge.

Hope that helped a little.

PS: you will wonder why you kept the sir suspension for so long when its gone, LOL!

nah, the SLS was tossed a while back and replaced with pump up shocks

umm..... unless you're lowering it or the original springs are sagging, why the new springs?

He says the ltd has sls, which means he will have the tiny soft bouncy springs for sls; should NOT be used without the pump up sls system.

Ditch the SLS

would i need to compress the rear springs to get them on like the fronts?

No Probs mate; you will more than likely need to compress the springs if you remian the stock height. (little higher w/o the sls to compensate)
