I would first check in your state to see if spacers are legal. The answer to your question is that if the tool fits, use it. If a lug wrench doesn't fit, use a socket wrench.

Definitely want to use a torque wrench to put them on, especially since they will be covered by your wheels and you can't see if you didn't tighten enough and a lug nut comes lose or if you tighten too much and a lug breaks. It would be too late by the time you found a problem

thats exactly what I was thinking...thanks for the input. I guess I was thinking about how awesome it would be to do it in the driveway, with no torque wrench. Thanks!!

Torque wrenches cost $25 at oreillys... Just make sure you can get up to 125 ft/lb at the least. And you can do it in the driveway i did my lift in the driveway! Except i used pneumatic wrenches
