you should also note that any lift spacer that installs outside of the strut assembly will cause over travel and damage the front disconnect and ball joints.
those style lift spacers are mostly sold on ebay.
1.25" wheel spacers are fine but you need to grind the factory lug studs for the wheel to mount flush to the hub.
you get what you pay for....
