does your guitar have a floating trem? if so you might need to adjust the springs etc.

iwhat guage strings are you getting? as long as they give the right amount of tension you probably wont have to make any truss rod adjustments

Just tune down, you wont need to adjust anything. Be careful when you tune the high E back up to standard though, it may snap.

You will have to adjust the truss rod (I recommend getting a tech to do it), get higher gauge strings as you mentioned, adjust the intonation and possibly the action.

This is if you're keeping this guitar in drob B all the time though.
