do you already have a lift?

with spacers you get some more ground clearance. but if your rig is already lifted it could be necesary to drop the TC after installing spacers.

BL: you get some more room for bigger tires and no more ground clearance. but the center of gravity will nearly stay the same.

i have 2.5" lift springs, 2" spacers and a 2" BL.

Do the body ,lift if you have any intention of doing other upgrades later down the road.
Without a body lift your going to severely limit your choices (if any) on things like tummy tucks and gas tank skids that will work.
If your not going to do anything like that I don't think it matters whether you choose body or coil lift.
