Default 2/4 drop with coils and leaf springs??

I'm wondering if my truck will sit remotely level with 2'' lowering coils and 4'' lowering leaf springs. I'd like to keep the hangers stock in case I sell the truck someday I can return everything to factory. The truck is a 2wd 1994 single cab 4 banger.

This is my truck with the original 3/5 drop. Little further on both sides but it'll be around the same difference in drop.
I think I ended up being a hair lower up front with that drop, but I also didn't mess with hangars so it might've been more like 4.5" rear drop. 5" is just what the kit said, I never actually measured.

I have slight rubbing on my Ranger in the front. 235/50r18 on a 18x8.5 +20. Only rubs at full lock on the plastic cover over the spring. Stock height (for now)

I rub just a hair on full lock on the fender liners up front, and the rear hits a little nub on the very outer edge of the fender liner on the rear when I go over bumps
