I leave them out on both types of bearings.  There is no assurance that
the new bearings of any mfg of ball types are made to fit exactly right
with the spacers.  So to get a correct wheel bearing adjustment, leave
them out and adjust in the conventional manner instead of the 46 to 65
lb.ft. the manual says.

All those who have lost a set of new wheel bearing in a week or less,
using spacers and the 46 to 65 lb. ft method, please raise your hand.
I'll bet you blamed it on the poor quality of the new bearings!!!  And
they aren't made in China, either!!
