Default Combining Lifts?

I'm wondering if it is ok for me to lift my truck by using a few methods together. I have 1.5 coil spacers up front to start off. I'm putting in a 3" lift spindle which doesn't change ball joint angles at all, then 3" blocks in the rear. After that I want a 1 or 2" body lift. Would that be unsafe?

And since I'm just lifting the body 1" could I just get new bolts and poly blocks for all the mounts or would I need a full on lift kit? I doubt all that stuff you see in a 3" kit would apply to a 1" such as steering extensions, gas filler extensions, bumper brackets.

Any advice is much appreciated.

No just keep in mind that lifting a truck period lowers center of gravity but thats what lift i had on my old chevy.

It raises the center of gravity. Anyway you'll be fine with all that. I have a 3 " spacer, 3" lift spindle 1.25 body lift and 3.5" lift in the back

When you did your 1.25 body lift did you have any complications like steering extensions and fan shroud clearance?

Nothing with the steering, but I did remove the lower fan shroud piece, which comes off easily.
