    I've done the research on using spacers with Billies and it seems like they cannot be used if adjusted to the highest setting. My question is, what spacers are they referring to? I assume they mean the huge 2.5" ones that get sandwiched into the coilover assembly. But what about the thin .5" ones that get stacked on top of the assembly and go over the 3 strut bolts?

    Yes you can use the top plate spacer, but i would not get one that is larger than 3/4 inch if you have stock UCA. I am going to run 3/4 inch spacers with my coilovers and sag them all way out here in a couple weeks.
