it depends on the lift and how it was achieved.. is it a full spring lift? or a shackle/ spring lift?

The only way I could think would be to pull 2 leafs out but Im prety sure it would lower the spring rating so personaly I wouldn't do it. Sometimes you can find just the springs for a 4" on craigslist or E-bay. Im kinda in the same boat I wana drop down to a 4" also.
