Did some digging after posting the question and seems there is a lot for me to read up on regarding LVM :) Sounds like I can do a lot of stuff live with this set-up but I'm probably gonna dd the drive before-hand as a backup. I don't mind adding the new drive to the old volume group if that's the most straight-forward approach and doesn't cause any performance degradation. This machine will be an email server and I need the mail directories which are under var on their own drive for performance reasons.
In response to what Gordon mentioned about system-rescue-cd I've utilized partimage before to try to take an image but had some issues trying to restore it to another machine, but alas that issue is for another day.
