Suspension lift

I was wondering if I could manage to put on a 3 inch coil spring lift without having to get new control arms. I'm not too familiar with suspension work.

You can. To address the vibes resulting from the change in pinion angle, you'll have to realign with either a transfer case drop, motor mount lift or potentially both.

Many people, including myself, go through the route of a 2" lift and 1" or 1.25" body lift to minimize the chance of vibes.

That's not a bad idea. I think I'm going to go all 3" on springs. The kit comes with spacers to drop the transfer case. I originally was going to use a 2" body lift and that was it, but after more research I realized what a bad idea that would be. Way too much stress on the body.
