Spindle lift/brakes question

Alright, so I've been thinking about a spindle lift for my coil-sprung '98 XLT 2wd. Not going nuts on offroading, I have a jeep for that, I just want a little more height and clearance for comfort and convenience reasons.

I've also been thinking about brake upgrades. One of the things I've read is that if you swap to 01+ spindles, even those from a torsion bar setup, you can fit the 11.25" rotors from the newer rangers.

So here's the question: If I grab lift spindles, rotors and calipers designed for/from an 01+ ranger I should be able to bolt it all up and net my lift and the larger brakes, right?

Let me know if I'm way off here, I'm new to the ranger's front set up I come from XJ's which are coilover solid front axles in 2wd or 4wd.

or just order the lift spindles

the longer coil springs will need longer brake hoses , the jeep tj stainless lift hoses are a direct bolt on so i have read
