    You can but I wouldn't advise it. If you lift using top plate spacers, you can use your stock shocks just make sure you know the risks of using top plates before going that route. If you off road or plan to, I'd avoid spacers.

    If you do a suspension lift, meaning new coils, then you'll want to replace the shocks because the stock shocks aren't valved properly to dampen a stiffer lift coil.

    Also, at 3" of lift, you should think about new UCA's to get your alignment in check.

    In the front yes with a spacer but trust everyone when we all say do not run a spacer lift...and you can't on the rear because there not long enough... My advice is if you want a good long lasting great riding/performing truck on and Offroad get a full OME kit with 885 springs and top plate spacers.... Will cost about 900-1100 for a complete top of the line suspension...... Cheaper but still good way to go is with bilstein 5100 shocks front and rear with eibach or OME springs up front and an add-a-leaf out back = 500-800.... Or if you wanna be a baller and have 3k to spend icon,fox,king ext coilovers wit resi shox out back and Allpro leaf packs ;)
