I voted for the spacers because depending on what your using the truck for they can be good. I know alot of people that use them but there trucks and suvs are not hardcore off roaders if you want it for the looks there fine but not recommended for serious off road use for sure. The only way you can break a shock like some of the peoples pics show is by jumping your truck. I use them and have had no problems and alot of times they ride a good as stock. just my opinion though i dont do alot of off roadind with my truck I have atvs and a built jeep for that but it looks nice towing everything to the mud pits lol.
