Smoking can be caused by different things. What color is the smoke? Blue,black or white?
When does it smoke, all the time from idle to high r's or just off idle or does it have to idle a while then once off idle it smokes. Best to figure that out before you spend alot of money. You can also do a leak down test and a compression test to get a look what is happening inside your engine.

I would suggest doing a leakdown test to see if it truly is a compression ring problem. What do you think happened to cause cylinder #3 to have its rings screwed up?
