I assume you talking about the blocks that hold the arms on; if so, they do not affect ride height, they affect roll center, anti-dive, kick-up, anti-squat, etc.

On asphalt most people run either a spool or a one-way (depends on driving style and track) so keep the mulit-diff in it.

Lower suspension holder are for altering roll center not ride height. You should have at front same 4 holders and same at rear. Front and rear don't have to be the same. You also can do some experiments with pro/anti squat.

For front axle - most used atm is spool - composite is better than multidiff locked. If you're racing foams front diff is way to go. On some occasions one way can be used as well.
