As he said, If you have the above lift then you can use it in combination with a lift that achieves its height thru the use of springs alone.

If you add 3 inches to 3 inches then you will need new shocks for sure! Shocks for a 3 inch lift will be too short for your overall lift of 6 inches upon completion.

Exactly and leafs or AAL in back but then you'll need extras such as control arms, brake lines, sye ,an drive shaft. I'm sure there's more. But ya it's possible.
