Light, durable, and cost effective...what's not to like. I have not had any trouble, not have I seen any viable alternative to billet. Who said they were bad?

Some other company said they are not as good as whatever the other material is.

Two inch billet spacers are no good when coupled with Ome springs because they give too much lift.

However, they are infinitely more durable than the plastic ones, which compress over time.

While they are cheaper than a full lift, they don't perform as well. All in what you intend to do with the vehicle.

I have used the polurethane spacers on a x90 (the red ones) that a guy named Jeff sells with no problems. It is a cheap lift for under $200.00. They are sold thru Low Range and on ebay. I am in the process of put them on a XL7. Spacer lifts are designed for lift not for more up and down wheel travel so if that is what you are after go with OME.. TShaw
