    I know, I know, its a spacer lift, but will only be temporary until to fit my tires until I have enough money for some coilovers. My question is whether y'all think this would be up to par with other spacer lifts such as Toytec or readylift. I also like that you do not have to disassemble your shocks to install this so it would be a very easy install for me. Like I said I know its a spacer lift and isn't the best root for lifting my truck but just looking for a cheap alternative as of now. Thanks for reading and hope for some insight.

    that's what I was looking to hear. Thanks Chris! why do you think some brands make it where you don't have to disassemble the shocks and others you do?

    Some spacers are a "Pre Load" spacer, that installs in the spring/shock assembly, and others are "Top plate" spacers. Each has their drawbacks.

    If a gun was to my head, and I had already been kicked in the nuts, I would go witht eh preload spacers, as the top plate ones have been known to cause the shocks to break when off roading. BUT, the ride with the preload spacers is horrible, so in all honesty, I would go without until I could afford to lift a better way.
