Thumbs down whats worse? body lift or spacer lifts?

I've heard a lot of people on here talking down body lifts and spacer lifts both, so I'm curious to see which is the lesser of the two evils. I have 3" coilovers and 2" axle blocks on mine and so far have had no serious issues with the ride quality or anything, but my rear is a little jumpy because of my sucky toyota leaf packs. I do plan on eventually upgrading my lift, but i need money for that, so for the time being I'm gonna have to live with it. Soo, feel free to let off your steam on anything concerning crappy lift kits.

Body is worse by like 100000000000. They look stupid, and are potentially very damage.


Spacers suck too, but you'll be fine with them if you don't beat on them hard.

I had a 2.5" spacer lift with a 3" body lift and 35" tires, ended up on the shoulder of the highway without an IFS on the passenger right. After that I removed my spacers and wont go back. The body lift stays though.
