If it has coil springs, shorter coils would work or have them cut & shortened. Coil compressor clamps for 1" drop or so are OK but not recommended, & either way the ride will be compromised New shorter coils is the way to go, keep in mind you might have to buy shorter shocks too & or look into lower front drop spindels. If leaf springs, a leaf or two could be taken out by a spring shop or heated & straitened & re-clamped together. Air shocks or air bags is another option too in place of springs. I once lowered a 90' Chevy pickup with 4" drop front spindels & a rear end 6" axial flip & "C" notch kit, with shorty shocks, & 50 series tires (smaller side wall) Lowering can open up a can of worms! Good luck.
