Coils shot after spacer lift?

So I just recieved my 5100's from Wheelers (very quick shipping and very helpful btw) to replace my Toytec spacer up front. The spacers have been on there for a little over 2 years now and the front end has sagged a little bit. My question is, will the coil springs be shot when I put the 5100's on since they have been compressed from the spacer for over 2 years?

did you use the top plate spacer or the spacer that goes just above the coil?

the preload from the spacer above the coil could cause the springs to sag. i wouldnt necessarily say "completely shot" though
