Proton D1200 Question

I need to change the voltage output on connections I and J from +/-22v to +/-18v. I am having to change out the old Mitsubishi M5219L to a new OnSemi NE5532ANG. Suggested working voltage for the OnSemi device is max 20v. So in the power circuit I see there are a couple of Zener Diodes, ZD901 and ZD902, rated at 22v. Is it as simple as changing the Zener Diodes to 18v ones? I am assuming there needs to be a change in R905 and R906 value as well. Any help in providing values and solving my problem is deeply appreciated. Attached is a Jpeg of the Power Supply Schematic.
