Spacers and lift springs?

hey guys right now my b2 has a 2" spacer(actually 1.75") and im wanting to get some small lift coils for a little more lift(1.5"), i was looking at the superlift, skyjacker, and rough country 3"(would remove spacers). which one would provide the best ride? also will i need some radius arm drop brackets? will the 4" ones work on a 3-3.25" lift? i will be getting some ext arms later on down the road. i really dont need but about 3" front lift and the rest is going to be body lift, so i dont want to hear "go with a 4 inch xxxbrand"
also will i run into any problems using lift coils and spacers together?

thanks guys

EDIT: also will i need a drop pitman?? btw i have the center pivot drop downs on it that the p/o installed on it

ive been looking around at different springs, and i found some skyjacker 1.5-2" for a 4cyl, with my v6 would they be any softer? im just looking to get 1"-1.25" more lift in the front, and im wanting better flex, but without the huge camber change like the xj springs. are the 4cyl springs what im looking for?

Ya the 2" skyjacker for a 4 Cyl should be could with your 2.8L... also, there is no problem with running spacers with lift coils.. If you have anything over 2" lift in the front, you're goona want drop brackets, as well as a drop pitman arm.
