CCM 3" Lift Question

Hello Element Owners, I know this topic has been discussed ad nauseam, but I wanted to pose the following questions as I can't figure it all out in what I've been reading. I am planning on buying a CCM 3" lift kit and having it professionally installed by my mechanic here in Portland (Bradshaw's with a 50 year history here). So,

Are there any additional parts I should purchase for the install, like stabilizer links, extended struts, etc.?

Are the Bilstein Adjustable Struts worth buying for this application?

Would adjustable struts add any additional lift?

Is there any way to get 4" or more out of this lift with additional parts, like the adjustable struts?

I'd love to hear from those who have successfully installed the CCM lift or otherwise obtained a 3" or greater lift on their Element. Thank you to all for your considered thoughts! Patrick

There is a thread about someone moving their whole rear suspension down with spacers including the diff IIRC. It improved the suspension geometry significantly. Cursh was the username to search for.

Thanks Tedsti

Thanks for the reply Tedsti. I've taken a look at Cursh's posts and 100s of others but still don't have a definitive answer to most of my questions. After many hours of reading, it's all still very confusing. If anyone else out there would like to take a stab at responding I'd be grateful.
