Lifting ranger ?

I just wanna level out my truck and im trying to figure what the cheapest way is . Im looking into coil spacers and i think thats what i wanna do im just curious if it will mess up my allignment? Im going to do it myself when i replace my shocks im just putting on the gabriel pros cause there good priced and theres a special right now buy 3 get one free so its only 75 +tax for them which is cheap. Does it matter if i use a cheap coil spacer all it is, is a spacer so its basically just a piece of metal or at least thats how see it . I could really use the input

Thanks
kevin

this is the coil spacer i was looking at

Awesome thanks for the input ! I'm going to order those now. Will they make the tires bad because of the camber caster will be off ?
