If it were me getting a new system, first, I would do everything possible to bring the heat-gain down. This will save on utility bills both summer & winter.
Then, I would have a manual J heatload calc down.
If you can figure out a way to make a 3-ton system work with a larger tonnage evaporator coil, many times it is difficult to get enough airflow-heatload through the indoor coil for those larger 4-ton condensers' where you can properly load a smaller tonnage condenser.
A lot of residential duct systems were never sized to properly load a 4 or 5-ton coil. If it only has 3-ton of psychrometric charted airflow through the E-Coil, then it won't absorb & move 4-ton to the outdoor condenser.
Edit: "Well, it looks like the low stage is about 3-ton, therefore, it all depends on what the load calc says."
It is a sizable investment so I would take my time & get everything right, especially the duct system & airflow.
What kind of climate do you live in, hot & humid or hot & dry? What size unit are you replacing, etc.? - Darrell

I have seen some non bleed of the txvs on some of their coils be an issue, but only on heat pumps.
