Matt, I would just make me a sketch, doesn't have to be to scale. Just add some dimensions to to it and you should be able to work it our really easy. Take what you said, put it on paper and it should be obvious.
I have a job this morning or I would sketch it out and show you what I am thinking.
God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I did this quick as I'm heading to work but sorta . . . pick the height from the carcase bed to the underside of your drawer body, lets say 3/8". First glides go here, add face height plus gap and move up. My 1/8ths are rounded in the diagram, didn't have time to format the numbers.

Get a straight stick, longer than the height of your cabinet, about 1 1/2" wide. I use a stick rule but a tape measure will work. you need a pencil and I use a combination square and i usually need an erasure or sandpaper to eliminate incorrect marks. Mark the finished height of your drawer holding box. mark the height of your base and whatever molding if any. Building from either the bottom up or the top down or the center out with your marks. Determine where your 28 3/8 (4- 7" fronts and 3-1/8" spaces. ) drawer fronts with the spaces will fit. Mark them in full scale on your story pole ( just vertical). This lets you know the exact size space behind the fronts for drawer and drawer guides and allow you to determine exact, to scale positioning. I need hurry off but will explain more with a drawing later if you like.
