the price seems to be almost double..

Well in order to put the spacers in you have to take the springs out anyway, if you look on ebay you can find lift coils for around $90, that's not to bad considering spacers are $45-$50, I would still recommend coils over the spacers.

Not they wont work, They are for ibeam suspension and you have control arm suspension/coil sprung suspension.

Dont cheap out, when it comes to suspension work being cheap isnt the best, you usually get what you pay for and its not only your safety if the parts fail but the others around you as well.

If you cant afford to do it right the first time dont do it at all until you have the money to do it right.
