The cheapest way would be a trip to the dump. Pick up ten or twelve chunks of busted concrete and some loose wire. When you get home strap enough chunks under the hood to get the front down on the axle snubber and leave the rest in the bed. Hopefully you picked up enough to keep the rear axle on the snubbers, if not go get a few more.

Another CHEAP way is torch the springs until they sag till the axles set on the snubbers.

Another CHEAP was is get four of those real small spares from the pick-it-yourself yard. (I have seen Ricers do this one.)

On a serious note: ALL the posters suggestions above are good. You just need to decide how deep your pockets can let that 56 drop.
