Lowering Basics - 50 Chevrolet Fleetline

OK, I can't find exactly what I'm looking for here so I'll post. I would like info on lowering a '50 Chev Fleetline about 2 - 3" safely, effectively.. the basics. No I don't want to bag it or slam it massively... just lower it a bit. Front end is stock, I have an open driveline and rear end with leafs. Any info would be greatly appreciated.. much thanks.

Lowering blocks on the rear and cut the coils on the front. When cutting the coils only cut a quater of a coil at a time untill you get the ride height that you want.
