Actually, with the front dipped down like that you can run into it from the stress on the front tires. I got an 03 Ext. Cab and we did 2" drop spindles in the front and it got dark before we got the 3" blocks in the rear. On our test drive the front was rubbing like a byach, but once we leveled it out, no more problems!!!(Except the wheel bearings we over tightened...but you live and you learn!) Once you get the back dropped you should be fine.

jack your truck up, and look up into the top of the fenderwell in front
remove the bolt at the top, it'll reduce some of the scrubbing, when i had my 4/4 and stockers i was mainly rubbing on that one bolt when i took it out it was alot better

when i had it at stock height it was at 28 in the front and 29 in the back then i look out two leafs in the rear and it leveled it out...then i got my 3inch coils in and the front is at 25 and i havent measured the rear cause its snowing...ill get some picks when it clears up in the next couple of days.

Mine is a 3/4 drop, and i rarely rub the fronts.....only from a really hard hit or bump etc. However, mine is 2" spindle and 1" spring. Keep in mind that the springs often settle and give you up to an extra inch of drop. Once you get the back down you shouldn't have any problems.
