What is the right way (or best way) to lift a Jimny by 3 inches?

What are the parts needed to be replaced or added?

Hi
To do a 3" suspension lift properly you will need
4x +3" Coil springs
4x +3" shock absorbers
4x HD +3" castor corrected radius arms
2x HD adjustable panhard rods
1x set of extended brake hoses
1x 25mm front prop spacer
1x Rear brake balance correcting bracket

Right way in my opinion is figuring out what your needs are. is it a standard jimny or is it loaded up with winches, cages, batteries and what not. Also, is it just for looks or for competition, greenlaning?

Standard Jimny with winch for occassional offroading during weekends. Definitely not for competition.
