1/4 or 1/2 inch spacers

If I add the 1/4 or the 1/2 (3/4" lift) I think they are spacers. I have a couple questions. I know I will need a alignment, but will the CV angle be effected with these compaired to just my 5100s at .85 and the Eibachs? And is there a reason to why people stay away from this at all? Or is it a totally safe practice? I'm just looking for a bit more clearance with the 285s but didn't want the bigger lift of the OMEs.
Thoughs?

Your angles won't be any much more affected than they already are. That should put you at 3" or very close which means you may need UCA's to get the caster in spec.

so is it recommended to put 2 spacers on at once? Im thinking 1/4 on the passenger and 1/2 on the drivers.
Im sitting at 36.75 drivers front and 37 passenger. Then 39 both in the rear.
Those are from the ground up too fender in the middle of the wheel

What are your measurements from the center of the hub up to the bottom edge of the fender? I ended up with a 1/2 inch spacer on the drivers side and an 1/8" on the passenger side. But I'm running ome's and have a heavier front end.

I talked with Toytec about it and they recomended it for a full 3" of lift. I was right at 20.25" (center hub to top of fender) before and now it is right at 23.25" I wanted it for the least amount of rubbing. It has not given me any problems so far.

do you have aftermarket UCAs? And how are the angles of the CVs?

Yeah I put them in when i did the lift. I actually made them too. One thing I just remembered is that if you run spacers larger than 1/4 you will need longer top plate studs as well which means Breaking down the suspension and pressing the old ones out.

1/4" spacers should put you up 1/2" how much height did you get from the lift? Did you take before and after measurements?
