    Will putting spacers on my struts create preload? Or will I have down force compression issues? I've seen a lot of shock absorbers broken from running spacers, will my struts have the same outcome?

    Where exactly are you putting the spacer? Preload of the shocks can be caused by shorter springs, and generally speaking lowering springs have higher rates, therefore the shocks get worked harder.
