PLEASE help. Am I doing this right?

So Im fairly new to zbrush (about 3 weeks in) and ive made a model... a 1.5mil poly model... Now USUALLY, in Mudbox, I will step down to the lowest devision (which I have already unwrapped in maya) and transfer the normal maps etc from the highest level to the lowest for a map extraction...

HOWEVER, My model in Zbush is dynameshed. In order to 'step down' I need to RE-dynamesh it at a lower resolution. I loose a lot of detail this way so I make a duplicate subtool to re-mesh and unwrap THAT. now how to I project the detail from my high resolution subtool to that of the new lower(and unwrapped) subtool??

is this possible? I also wanna texture the thing in mudbox so I could always export both versions into mudbox after unwrapping then do it that way but still - surely this can be done in zbrush too?

Thank in advance, Pros
