Cranking those coil overs to the point that they will provide 3'' of lift will make your truck ride very, very stiff.

Your ass end will sit higher than your front end with that leaf spring. All Pro, Wheeler's, and a few others make 2-3'' springs that will make your truck sit level when lifted 2-3'' up front.

That rear shock is tool long for your application. You'll be bottoming the shock before hitting the bumpstop, which will damage it.

I don't see whether you're two or four wheel drive, but if you're two wheel drive a spindle lift with coil overs is hard to beat. If you search you can find picture threads of spindle lifts on here.

Will depend on the spring rate and valving, but the more you're cranking the C/O's, the stiffer it will ride.
