Lift kit worries!

I currently have a 2.25 inch coil spacer lift with 31s. I am wondering if I can go any higher without it effecting anything? Will a bigger lift such as 3.5" or 4" effect steering, mpg, or stability of the vehical? ( will I go into death wobble if i drive on the high way with a bigger suspension lift?
Sorry for all the dumb questios!
Thanks in advance!!!!

no, usually anything over 3" you start screwing stuff up. the higher, the worse.

with 3.5", you'll want adj track bars. you MIGHT need a SYE kit and keep a very close eye on the rear might not work. sometimes just a TC drop will cut it. steering should remain ok, so don't mess with it unless you have to. you'll need to get an alignment and recenter the wheel of course, but after that it'll be alright.

just curious, but if you've got a 2.25" lift already, why not just lift the body 1" or 1.5"? then you don't have to deal with any of this crap. BL's are safe, just dont go more than 1.5". you'll save a sh*tload of money if you only want an inch or so to fit bigger tires.
