Choosing spacers

Three questions;
1. If I were to do spacers on a non lowered car, will it damage or potentially reduce the longevity of anything mechanical (suspension, tie rods, ect..) on my car?
2. Will it change the dynamics of the cars handling?
3. What is the best set up? Some here say 15f/12r and others say 12f/12r

1 & 2. Differences will be very minimal. There could be some shortening of wheel bearing life, but again, minimal.
3. Who are you asking? Like with anything, there will be a diversion of opinions. You are talking about only 1/8" difference per side between 12s & 15s, so it's not dramatic. Look at the various photos posted in various threads of both setups and make up your own mind.
