There are no upgrades made as of yet for the struts (shocks). With the spring upgrade you just change the existing coil spring in the factory strut with the new spring (you need a strut compressor tool to do this). Some upward travel in the strut is lost but people that have the springs seem satisfied. They have said that it has been fine on the road and the vehicle handles quite well and even better than stock.
The spacer lift (RRO lift) uses metal spacers that fit between the strut and the body. The strut remains in it's stock configuration and just "raised up" the desired amont by the spacer being used. Just like a "budget boost" is used on a Jeep Wrangler. pretty simple to do. I would recomend an alignment after either of these lifts were installed.
Either of these will lift the vehicle and add the ground clearence that is desired. They both work and help for the off roading of one of these type vehicles. Not to mention it makes them look how they should have come from the factory in the first place. The decision comes down to what you want. Look at both and see what fits your budget and needs.
