Currently I'm running KW V3's with custom linear rate springs. With this setup, my front spring perches actually sit lower than the regular KW V3, so I need to run thicker spacer.
Wait, you HAD 2mm or you NOW have 2mm clearance after spacer?

Assuming it's the latter, I'm surprised you needed 10mm clearance to get around the perch sitting where is now. I would've thought the BBK would've been the bigger issue (and if I'm reading what you wrote correctly, had the perch not been in the way, you would've only needed 5mm to clear the calipers).
