I currenty have a 4/7 drop on a 2009 crew cab 4x4 with no problems. My biggest recommendation would be helper bags. Also will depend on your wheel offset what kind of rubbing you will expierence if any.

What are helper bags

They are made to help level and keep the truck from bottoming out with a load. They install between the frame and leafs. For instance I would keep about 8 lbs psi in them at all times and would never bottom out. Also they allow you to adjust height of the truck slightly. With your typical 4/7 drop the rear will sit lower than the front. Put a few pounds in the bags and now you sit level. They are like 300 to 350 dollars for the kit But unless you want to do a c-notch it is the best option.

Helper bags are 100% bolt on. The hardest part to me is actually putting the axel on top of the leafs (flip kit).
