Toytec Lift 3" Spacer needed?

I bought this lift for my 2012 DCSB. I wanting to know who else has installed it and if they used the spacers to get 3". Also the 1/4 spacer for Taco lean? I bought the spacers, but not sure if I want to install them.

I would install the Eibach and Bilstein and drive a few weeks or hundred miles or when you retorque your bolts and see if the driverside is lower by then and if it is. Install the top plate space. Not like you need a spring compressor to install it. Just unbolt the top bolts and pry down the coilover assemble and slip in the spacer.

Thanks for the input, you are right about the 1/4" spacer. I am also wondering about the 1/2" that does require the compressor to install.
