Default Coil spring spacers vs torsion keys

Does anybody know if there is a big difference between the above mentioned? I want to raise the front of my truck just to level it with the rear.
There is about a $100 difference between the two & I was wondering if the coil spring spacers made for a rougher ride/handling. Any feedback is most appreciated.

Yeah, there's a big difference. Spacers are for coil spring suspensions and keys are for a torsion bar suspension. Your truck has torsion bars but to answer your question, spacers wont make the ride any rougher.
