Will,

Next time you post, please specify OS version, there are some differences between V4.x and V5.x. Also attaching a "volprint -Aht"-output would help for giving specific advise.

If you have a spare slot on the SCSI-bus, put the replacement disk together with the 2 older disks in the system, disklabel it, and add it to the same diskgroup as the existing volume.
After that use the command:
volevac -g diskgroup old-media new-media.

This could save you the filesystem restore.

Rgds,
___ Johan./
