The " I should have gone bigger" regrets. I did the same thing. Once you reach 3" in lift you will really need to contend with other parts needing upgrading, some immediately, some eventually.
Most shocks are labeled for different lift heights. Some for less than two inch lifts and others for 3-4 or 5-6 inch lifts. Once you hit three inches of lift there is the real concern over keeping proper geometry for axles and drive lines. I would strong consider waiting till you can address some of these issues in a more complete kit, that will include, proper shocks, control arms, trackbars, extended break lines and the such. You will eventually need to consider aftermarket shafts as well.
There are some really nice and generally complete lift kits on the market.
