The springs that come with the TF kit will be much stiffer than the stock Jeep springs; you'll be fine, even with the heavy bumper.
Not sure what you're asking about the wheel spacers. Only reason you'd need those is if you were gonna run a wider tire (11" +) on the stock rims, which have poor backspacing.
If you're looking at them to give you a wider stance, they will
do that. Just buy good ones like the Spidertrax, and be aware that you should check them periodically (tire rotations) to make sure they're properly torqued.
Personally, I'd save up for new wheels w/backspacing 4.5" or less, and pair em with new tires, before I'd go with wheel spacers. Just a personal preference.
