The size of the spacer used will not indicate the amount of actual lift gained. The spacer will alter the spring rate because it is under more tension and this will create lift along with the thickness of the actual spacer. This is the same concept for the bilstein lift, it alters the spring rate and increases ride height. Think of it as if you had a coil over and you are adding preload to the shock.
So an 1.5 spacer will raise the height approximately 2-3" depending on spring condition. The bilstein shocks work great actually and give a nice ride.

All great notes and suggestions from everyone. I think it is money well spent. Saving a ton going with a spacer but if I end replacing the OE struts down the road anyway- why not just get it done now?
This isn't rocket science nor does it need to be scientific. Simple laws of physics. When I installed the 5100's I removed the old shocks on the front compressed the springs and installed the new shocks on the middle perch. Reinstalled the assembly without issue. No idea about the spacers but the 5100's I think is the best route to go for a small lift.
