Resize2fs (included in the e2fsprogs) should work just fine for ext3.
You do have to run e2fsck first, which will run the journal, but
resize2fs is paranoid, and requires a filesystem check before you
resize the filesystem anyway (because any hidden filesystem
corruptions can be terribly mangnified, and cause serious data loss,
if they aren't corrected before the filesystem is resized).

I imageine that ext2resize should work as well, again as long as
e2fsck is run to make sure that journal recovery has been done.
