Lowering my E350

I bought my van about 6 months ago and everytime I go to put it in the garage the back end drags on the garage door frame. It needs about 1 inch, maybe 2 max to totally clear my garage door opening. Are there any simple ways I could lower my van 1 to 2 inches? Are there any not so simple ways too? Modifying the garage door isn't possible since is surrounded by siding. Cutting into that would look aweful. Links to kits or hardware would be appreciated.

That might work... can I borrow your mother in law sometime? Mine only weighs 250

How about leaf spring compressors or air bag suspension. Anybody?

Good looks run in her family, eh? They say if you want to know what your wife will look like in the future, take a gander at the MIL. I think you're good to go!

To the OP:
How about a lowering shackle kit? Might get a couple inches out of one.

Just a thought.
