The problem is that I have 0 toe already, so if I screw up ride height at all then I will need an alignment to fix the toe.

Anyone actually done this?
You'll have to raise the spring perch 29mm (about 1-1/8") to get the same ride height. Make sure that there's enough thread above the perch before you start.

Basically, you're shortening the spring stack by removing 25mm of helper spring that's pressed from a spiral into a cylinder by the weight of the car, and 4mm of spring spacer.
