Assuming it's the latter, I'm surprised you needed 10mm clearance to get around the perch sitting where is now.

You read correctly. I now have 2 mm clearance with the 12 mm spacers.

Sorry I forgot to clarify, but I am using shims on my strut bolts to gain the additional camber instead of using camber plates up top. The shims effectively moved the top of my wheel/tire closer to the strut/spring perch, thus the need for the spacers.
