When you upgrade your Kernel, many other system libraries (like libc) can also update.
This, creates a cascade where all software dependent on libc also update.
Downgrading a Kernel really means downgrading... sometimes 100s of software packages.
Be very careful to only execute this type of action using a dryrun flag, till you get a clean downlevel.
If you somehow get some packages downleveled + other broken, you may end up with a Bricked system (unable to finish a clean boot).
If a client asked me to do this, I'd start with a fresh machine + install the exact kernel version, then port their code to the downlevel machine.
Using a fresh install of downleveled Kernels, is the cleanest/fastest way to produce your desired runtime environment + ensure you have a machine that boots.
