i was checking e-bay a few minutes ago when i discovered a type of spacer lift that i was not familiar with. it stated that you did not need a spring compressor. it stated that it bolts to the top of the strut. can some one take a few minutes and explain this to me. i will be getting a spacer lift in the next few weeks. is this a better way to go ? which is the better of the two ? :confused: thanks.

You get exactly what you pay for. Those top loading spacers will hyper-extend your CV's and increase the risk of failure, plus they ride worse than regular spacers (if you can believe that's possible).

you don't want that kind of lift. If it just bolts to the top of the strut rather than being placed within the strut.
The difference between the two is that the correct kind of spacer lifts fits inside the coil and compresses the coil so when you install the strut back in your rig the spring is tighter and does not sag as much and thereby raises your truck. you don't gain any more travel from this, just height. The other kind of lift you are talking about will fit on top of the strut assembly, not limiting downtravel at all which would be bad for the rest of your suspension because it wont handle that for very long and will break.
