Zane, the loader I just put on my 4000 had cylinders that were so rusted that it wasn't worth trying to rebuild them. I took measurements of the old cylinders and kept my eye on I found a good match for the bucket cylinder right away, but the lift cylinders took a while. You need to measure all of the key dimensions. Size and type of mounts at each end of the cylinders is important. The length of cylinder (center-to-center of the mounting holes) fully closed is one measurement that is used, and the stroke (difference between length when full closed and fully opened) is another. The final measurement is the bore, but you can be a bit less exact when matching the bore. In fact, since you're worried about speed of the loader, going with a slightly smaller bore is probably a good thing. 3 inches sounds a little too big for a 3000 anyway. A bigger bore is just going to slow down the lift and increase the ability to lift more weight, and the 3000 shouldn't be lifting too much anyway because the front axle isn't designed to carry that much. If you're going to be replacing one lift cylinder, you should probably replace them both so that they're a matched set. I got mine for about $100.00 each.
