    IMO spacer are if you want to lift it cheap but sacrifice ride and quality where a full suspension if keeping the original ride or improving it. Like I have been told you get what you pay for. That is only my opinion though.

    Spacer lift is a spacer tha pushed the front strut down giving lift.
    Suspension lift typically replaces the strut with a longer one or a longer coilover.

    Factory fender flares, 3" front 2" rear Readylift kit. 22x9 +40 offset OEM replicas with 285 55 22 Nitto Trail Grapplers. Linex Pro with premium coating in the bed and top 2" of the tailgate where it sees the most abuse. Weathertech floor liners and rain guards.
    My ready lift 3/2 maintains factory ride quality. It's a spacer lift that pushes the truck up while keeping the same ride. IMO it depends on how much lift you want...more than 3-4 inches and you will have to go suspension lift rather than spacer, but for 350 bucks you can't go wrong with spacers.
