3/4 top spacer lift with 5100's set at 1 inch?

I have a 2002 4x4 and i just got the bilstein 5100's and i want to raise the front about 2". The 1st gen bilsteins only have three settings and i dont want to go all the way to 2.5". I want to have a good ride so instead im thinking on putting a 3/4 top plate spacer lift from toytec on the bilsteins set at 1". I know the problems with spacers but im just wondering if such a small spacer is alright or should i just do the 1/4 spacers to give me 1/2 more lift?

I wouldn't worry about a spacer that small as long as you keep the total lift under 3"

The 5100's can accommodate up to 2" of lift in the back I believe.

I have these toytec spacers (P/N 25912) I no longer need. $20 plus shipping if your interested. My zip: 15905 I could send in priority envelope for about $5 anywhere in US. They could use some buffing if you like them to shine. They are 1/2" thick designed to lift 3/4" These will fit a 2002 Tacoma.
