A 3" space is a lot in my opinion. Good call on flipping the track bar. Personally I'd try and find a spring long enough to meet you height needs.

I was looking at the 2 1/2 from sinister.i fit 40x13.50 mud grapplers on an 8" with out any issues but they look a little too tight in the front. And if I did the 2 1/2 flipping that ball joint shoukd line it up almost perfectly correct?

Correct, drag link and track bar should line up well with the track bar flipped. Just make sure your track bar is long enough and also may have some caster issues since the radius arm drops aren't meant for those extra 2.5" of lift

The bottom bar of the 4 link is adjustable.
