Is it a weight distribution issue or something else?
By spacers do you mean plastic clip-on spacers for the shock bodies?
Those are for tweak adjustment or changing ride height (might not be fine enough for tweak, most now have threaded shocks with collars for doing that)
To adjust droop you use the set screws on the suspension arms to limit the down travel of each arm so they are at what you want and even on each side. While doing this your shock length should not limit the travel of the arms.
After that you can check for tweak by lifting one end of the car to see if both tires leave the ground together, if not, say the front left tire leaves first, you screw down or add more spacers to your rear right shock. The rear left shock should be unloaded by the same amount to maintain your ride height.
Then repeat for the other end of your car.
Hope it helps.
*This is just what I go by, and of course your chassis itself has to be flat/tweak-free.
