Exclamation Suspension Lift help

im having a bit of trouble on what i need to properly lift my 2000 Sahara TJ without having to replace or buy new parts later on down the road. I plan on lifting it 3" and put on 33x12.5 tires. at this height do i need a slip yoke eliminator or an extended drive shaft, a drop pitman arn, or what because i'm lost. the lift ive been looking at is a Black Diamond 3" Suspension with AT shocks, and it comes with:
Front and Rear Coil Springs
4 Shocks
Front and Rear Bump Stops
Front Sway Bar Links
Rear Sway Bar Links
Rear Track Bar Bracket
Transfer Case Lowering Kit
all for $680
Is there anything else that i need so i do not have a bumpy or shakey ride? Thanks

No pitman arm. Sye/ cv are always nice. It comes down to do you want it perfect or do you want it driveable.

no need for a drop pitman arm. the sye is something no one can say for sure because every jeep is a little bit different. some need it with a 2" bb others don't need it until going over 3". that lift you have is right on the teeter point of needing one or not. i'd suggest that you have the money ready to go if you do need to get the sye.
