Lowering an E350

Hello,
I just bought a 2012 E350 and I'm new to the forum. I want to lower the front about 3 inches and the rear about 5 inches. I have searched around and have not found any good videos or posts that help. Maybe I am not entering the correct search words. I have found the airbagit.com I beams for lowering the front end, but are there any other ideas or options? And I haven't found anything for lowering the rear. I don't know if I should remove a leaf spring or ??? I really don't need the full load capacity of a 350 so I'm not worried about that. I really just need to be able to fit it in my garage.
Any info would be appreciated,
Thanks,
Bob

I have thought about this PLENTY. I've researched it some.

Its nearly impossible.

The rear axle is very very very close to the frame/body. The front is very expensive due to the cost of the I beams. Also I believe the aftermarket lowering I beams are questionable quality.

Ive considered seeking front spindles but no one has anything for E series. And I never did find out if any of the F series stuff will fit.

Let et me know if you find answers to these concerns and I'll be on board with you.

Oh and if you cut or change the front springs it will change your camber and likely chew up your tires in a hurry.
