Yes you should. Logins or google now card settings won't be cleared.

Disadvantages would be more along the lines of when you open the Facebook app, for example, your friends profile pictures next to their status updates would show the default no picture icon for a quick second before the images load and are cached again. Yes you should clear it.

Almost 4GB...yikes.
