What would be the difference between using suspension blocks that make the front wider as opposed to using narrower blocks and widening the front at the wheel hub using Hub spacers thanks for your replies guys

Both ways will affect your suspension geometry differently. Widening the inner lower hinges will give you less camber gain and also affect your spring rate (shock angle will change). Widening the axles will lower? the roll centre and make the suspension softer.

Not to mention changing the scrub radius.
