BC Coil Shocks and Lift

Hello, does anyone have experience using the BC Coilovers in conjunction with the CCM 3" Lift? Is there a better alternative over stock, like the Monroe? Would GREATLY appreciate a response from someone in the know. Thanks!

Postscript: I spoke with Wes at BC Racing who informed me that their coilovers are mostly designed for people who want to LOWER their Element; that while they are adjustable, even setting the units at their tallest level would only yield a stock height, or maybe a "tad higher"; and that he did NOT recommend them with a lift kit. So, I plan on replacing all struts, shocks, strut mounts, bushings, ball joints, sway bar mounts, and tie rod ends (one is literally torn) with stock OEM using Swift Springs (with a stiffer rate) for my CCM 3" lift. The front end on my 70K Element is shot from doing commercial duty in Brooklyn, then a 1,500 lb. (yes, that is what is was) overloaded ride from NYC to Portland.

For rims and tires I plan on fully polished Rota Grids 16 X 8 +10 with BFG 31-inch ATs (exact tire TBD). I will grind/trim plastics, pinch bolts, etc. as necessary. There's at least one guy here whose done these rims at 30 inches without a lift. I will keep the community posted.
