Need some opinions with springs vs spacers

What's up, everyone!!

Alright...I'm planning my next little "phase" of my build and would like some opinions.

I'm going to be putting a new stinger and winch on and to counter the weight I'm debating between new front springs or simply putting 3/4 spacers in front.

Basically, here's where my options would lie.

1. Add the winch and bumper up front (synthetic line) and put 3/4 spacers in front.

2. Add 5.5" lift springs in front (currently have 4" springs) and then add new shocks (currently have 3-4" lift shocks). I may also need to replace the lower control arms with adjustable (currently have 4" lift fixed lowers).

I'm not too concerned with the prices between them at the moment since obviously choice one is TONS cheaper lol. I'm just concerned between which one will be the best setup and best choice.

This is my dd...I'm making a balanced onroader/offroader and just want the best setup.

If spacers will work great and aren't noticeably worse than springs and accessories to counter it, the great...

Thanks for all opinions!!
