Regarding the two different lifting options, they both have their plus and minus:
Strut: Plus: Good solid 50mm increase, with no chance of spring sag. Maintains original soft ride. No change to original shock travel and compression lengths.
Minus: Load carrying capacity is not changed.
Spring: Plus: Increase in load carrying capacity. Firmer suspension, resulting in more stable ride. Less shock fade over corrugations due to less pressure being placed upon shock, with spring controlling shock more efficiently.
Minus: Springs may sag after time, reducing lift. Suspension travel is slightly shortened due to increase in shock ride height.
In short, if you are only after a lift to impress your mates in the carpark, then the strut would be my choice. If you want better off-road benefits, and carry more stuff, then the spring lift would be preferred. This is why I chose the spring lift. Although my shock travel is slightly less now, I have not been in any situation where it has caused me any problems.
Good luck with your choice.
