anyone use top gun customz lift spacer?

im looking to add 1" of lift to the front of my truck and came across these. my truck now has a 7" icon lift and the front seems slightly lower than the rear. i like the idea of the under spring spacer instead of the above ones. icons tei spacer looks identical to the top gun ones but the top gun one is 1/3 the cost. if there is some great advantage to the icon one please let me know. so has anybody used a top gun one? looking for you opinions. thanks

All the above just to haul the 900hp street mustang

Sorry I cant help you with the spacer, but I have a question for you. How do you like the ICON kit? I am getting one in a few weeks and just want to make sure its worth the money. How does it ride? Did you go with the blocks or springs in the rear?

I think they all do about the same thing. That's exactly what I did was add a 1" spacer (ICON TEI) to my ICON 7" kit:

20" Harley Wheels 305/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers

looks like top gun customz it is! i figure there cant be a $100 difference in a 1" piece of steel. ill be ordering it today.
txfireman1972: i remember when you added your spacer, looked 10x better in my opinion. im in need of an alignment right now so i figured id add it before and kill two birds with one stone.
thanks for the opinions guys
