Possibly bags might come into play in the rear?

Let me hear some great ideas from you guys! I don't have experience when it comes to making stuff like this work. Let alone be reliable and comfortable.

This is the only reason I hate my truck. If ya wanna go low, it ain't easy....or cheap.
Looking at my truck I would need a notch where the control arm is and another where the axle is to be able to reach 7''. You would probably be better off doing a notch where the axle is and getting a custom 4 link that runs inside the frame to eliminate that clearance issue. You would really need adjustable control arms anyway for 7''. I haven't checked, but clearance inside the wheel well might be an issue with that kind of a drop.
