Very true, however, the bolts I've chosen are long enough to support the addition of the reinforcement plate with the taller spacers.

I'm currently using 25mm long bolts with the factory spacers, and still have a few threads showing underneath the strut mount. The reinforcement plate can't be any thicker than 5mm.

Don't worry, I've done my homework on making sure the bolts are long enough.
