    This evening I completed my ome 3 inch lift. Put heavy duty coils on along with heavy duty upper control arms. I intend on putting a full replacement on front and rear. But haven't yet. Truck steers horrible can it be fixed with alignment or do I need more weight to correct problem?

    Alignment will correct the steering. You changed the configuration of the front suspension enough to throw it off.
    Heavy duty coils will just make for a little rougher ride without extra weight like offroad bumper

    With 3" lift you should go 35s. You will have to trim some plastic on the front wheel well and remove the front mud flaps. No big deal.

    After a bumper with a decent weight you should get it aligned to ensure tires wont get worn uneven but it shouldn't cause the steering issues you have right now by going up 3"
