Coils, or coil spacers or spindles. All about the same in difficulty. Not very hard but its just a matter of how much you wanna spend and how you want it to ride.

The cheapest way is coil spacers but they won't ride as good as lift coils would. To run a bigger lift coil you have to get a bigger spindle as well.

What do you mean by this? You don't have to change your spindles if you get coils. They are two separate parts.
