A truck shop would be the best bet for the beams.. Usually get about 3" out of an axle flip, if the hangers on the rear bolt or rivit on, you can flip them upside down and from side to side, and you will get another 2", but your not going to get 4" on the front from cutting a coil or 2 and adjusting the beams

matt167 Panther ( Crown Vic/ Merc Grand Marquis ) front end's bolt in. Rear, you can flip the rear axle ontop the springs and lower that way.. I guess you could heat and bend the original beams to correct a little camber from a coil or 2 removed as there forged, but lowering a '65-'96 twin I beam truck is not cheap
