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.
