Soa ?

i've got most of the pieces to lift my mj but i don't want to go too big because it's my dd and i can't swing an axle swap right now so i dont want any more rubber on the D35 than the 31's on there now. I've got rusty's 3in HD coils and 3.5" shocks but i can't decide what to do with the rear. i'd like to just go ahead and do SOA w/ 35's but i need to keep the truck somewhat practical and reliable for now. Can i go SOA and pull a few leaves to net around 4"? ovbiously that's going to kill my payload abilities though... maybe i'll look for some flatter springs (xj?) and just re-use the main. what do you guys think? i've got some spacers i'd throw on top of the coils but i know it's just going to look silly w/ 31's.
BTW- roughly what is the max height i can go w/ a LWB and not experience ANY ds vibes? i take the truck on long trips often and it rides so smooth right now, i'd hate to introduce ds vibes.
Also, can the old spring perches be ground/ cut off and re-used? it's my "budget" rig but safety comes first
