Default Lifting a 98 ZJ

First off, Id like to apologize because this may seem like a very silly question...

Im looking to lift my 98 ZJ using the Rough Country Kit

http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep-sus...it-636-20.html


The question I have is;

after the putting on the lift, what else do I need to do to it to make sure everything's gravy? The reason I ask is i've been told that if you lift your rig over 3", you need to do some additional work.

Ive been lurking around for a few weeks, but cant seem to find a clear cut answer.

You will need a new front track bar http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/ZJ%20Track%20Bars.html is the best bang for the buck.And the rear you can buy a drop bracket http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/10616.html

Based on what i've read on here im probably going to go with the IRO 3.5" Benchmark kit instead

better Idea I was very dissatisfied with rough country lift I got for my zj, the only part of it that still is on my jeep are the coils.
