Default lifting my jeep more

I am planning on lifting my jeep some more but im unsure as to what im going to need to change steering wise. I have three inch spacers on the front and a mono-leaf in the rear. I want to get 3"-5" lift coils for the front and get different leaf springs along with add a leafs for the rear. What do i need to get for the front steering

I have 4.5 inches lift and i added a leafs and "earrings".I removed rear axle shock brackets and made them upper. It is good idea if you want to save a stock shocks. In the front i have SKYJACKER NITRO 8000 and custom springs,trackbar from ZJ (rear axle) with XJ silentblocks.i think that spacers is good if you want to make other people look at your car and think that is beautiful and big.But if you want a real offroad jeep you have to spend money for suspension.In future i want install steering bar from wrangler and some devices from WJ.

I agree with ^DIRTRIDER in needing a full on suspension, 1" spacers are ok but nothing compares to full coils and full leafs and maybe drop brackets. Unsure on steering options.

What part of pa are you in
