I'll still be riding on stock dampers unfortunately so I'm almost thinking maybe I should go with longer studs and 10mm spacer shims instead.

Imo you'll regret not flushing your wheels. Its perfect. If you want to keep the current dampers just go with a camber kit. I plan on buying that next.

I've got 20mm in the back and lowered on eibach pro springs and the look is really perfect, other than the occasional rub of course.
