I trying to show that when comparing apples to apples, that GC and stock are equal "stack height" and equal suspension travel.

It is a 10.5mm thick washer, with a hidden countersink that matches the GC countersink.

Correct! The spacer is not part of the "stack height", the spacer is part of the "block height", which is how it affects available
travel.

"Stack height" is a contrived term, and can be very confusing, if not downright misleading.

The pic I attached we are trying to show "stack height" as being 29mm across the board, while the crucial "block height" can vary, and is actually the TRUE indicator of available suspension travel.

I only heard about this thread via some emails asking questions that didn't make sense to me, so I hope this explains to the guys who emailed me.
