Not unless you like tasting your spine.. No joking aside its possible but it would ride like crap when I let the bags down on mine past 4 inches it rides terribly plus past 3 inches and the link bars are so far up they start to pull the axle forward so the rear wheels dont line up in the wheel well...

The 2/4 Ground Force kit drop the '09+ quite nicely. 'Bags aren't a neccessity, but they do improve ride quality and maintain towing capacity. I did a 2/4 on my '07 and I've noticed IMPROVED handling and had no problems with ride quality on my 40 series rubber. As for most other members with the 2/4 kit on the 09+ they have been quite happy with it and the ride, maybe sword just has a sensitive 'seat' j/k.

Ya 4 inches and your fine but you start going past that and well... I found if I keep mine about 3 1/2 in the back and it rides great just like it did from the factory start going lower and your going to have to do some frame notching and most likely putting a different 4 link on the back because the upper link bars are the first thing that hits the frame on these trucks I will see if I can take some pics for you at different settings to show you what I mean...
