    A lot of dislike on spacer lifts, but personally I have had okay luck with them. My buddy runs the Toytec brand 3" an he likes it, says it didn't effect his ride much. I think for the price if your mainly on road an looking more for wheel fitment and aesthetics its still a good choice for most people. Rough country seems to have a bad wrap. I have no personal experience so I wont feed into that. I think a lot of folks will probably steer you to at least a Bilstein 5100 setup to get a few extra inches for relatively cheap over the rough country. I think mainly it comes down to what your going to use it for an how much you want to spend.. Just be realistic with your expectations. A $300 lift option isn't going to perform like a $2000+.

    That being the case, I personally think those rough country ones you have a link to look intriguing for the money. I'd give it a shot. I think a spacer lift would work fine too, I see a ton of guys running Ready Lift spacer or Toytec. 2 different approaches on how they do it, check out the suspension section there is a sticky that explains how they all work. As I said before alot of guys prefer to spend a little more an go Bilstein either 5110 or 6112. There are alot of other options out there. But tons of info and reviews on here.

    If these shocks are $250/pair loaded with springs and drop right in, you can't beat that price. Even if they only last 50k miles, the money you save on installation (if you don't have a real spring compressor) is worth it. These are exactly what I was looking to do, and I have to believe they are better than the Ranchos. I had the rancho quick lift preloaded struts on my Silverado and they rode like trash.
