As far as I know, that should work fine.

"tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/foo".  After that, an e2fsck run will
remove the journal completely (if you have a hidden journal).  

You could also try gnu parted, which I think will happily resize an
ext3 filesystem as long as it has been cleanly unmounted (although I
haven't tested it, that's just a third-hand report).
