Editing lower sub divisions outside of Zbrush and bringing them back in?

Hi, I'm a bit stuck and wondering if I can do this with Zbrush.
I've made a model in Max which I have imported into Zbrush, added sub divisions and added detail.
There's something in the model I want to change back in Max using the lowest original sub division. My question is can I export this lower division out of Zbrush, make changes and then bring it back and (load?) the higher divisions? ..and these higher divisions would change according to the fixes i've made in Max?

Just use goz to transfer your lowest level to max. make changes. goz. zbrush will tell you mesh topology has changed. click yes. your changes will automatically be reprojected up the levels and a morph target automatically stored.

My GoZ doesn't work, but when I make changes to my original base mesh what I do is keep the older mesh, append it after loading in the new one and then reproject the details back on to the new mesh. Make sure to clean up after each projection though. Sometimes it can get a bit messy.
