Looking to upgrade lift

Hey everyone, I currently have a 3" OME hd lift with Bilsteins, 3/4" spacers and IRO adjustable upper and lower front control arms. I'm curious to see what it would take, or even if it's worth it, to switch to 4" springs and keep the spacers. So I would be at just under 5". I'm assuming just switching the springs and readjusting the arms and alignment is not enough.

From everything I have read on here, once you go above 4in of lift you should really look into long arms instead of adj. short arms.

Before making the decision to go above 4" of lift on a WJ, you have to make sure that you possess enough money and patience to see it through. It can be an expensive and maddening process. I have seen a fair number of WJ's for sale because the current owner could not get it working right after the lift install. Just something to consider.....

Yea that's what i figured and I'd rather do it right or not at all. My current setup has served me more than well for over a year now. Looks like I'll just stay with it.
