Default Looking to add spacers to my 4.5 rough country lift

I have a 1988 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 litre with a 4.5 rough country lift and 31" BF GOODRICH MT's , i would like to go just a little bigger to keep from doing "cutting" on the fenders, I am looking to put a 3" spacer in the front and a 2.75 block in the rear. ( i have owned this jeep for 2 years and have not done much with it due to other difficulties with axles and what not that are now fixed) But my main question here is if I were to put the cheap mans spacer lift to add to my existing lift would I need to take any other measurements to make this all compatible with eachother? I figured longer break lines would have to be installed but I was wondering about the control arms if this makes a dramatic change to the angle of the axles by any means and would i be looking at getting a slip-yoke-eliminator kit given once i add these spacers i will have around a 7.5 lift??

Adding three inches to a 4.5" loft will change everything. SYE, track bar, brake lines, etc.
