The threaded shock bodies are for adjusting ride height.
The spacers aren't "pre-load" clips, they're spacers, to adjust ride height (rough).

If you preload the springs, you're putting unnecessary wear on the shock AND when the car sits, it's sitting at the TOP of it's suspension travel, meaning if the car hits a drop in elevation, it Flies/falls into it. Do that with you're real car and see how bad you trash it. There's no reason for a car to lose contact with the surface IF it's within it's suspension limits to keep it in contact with the surface. JUST because the manufacturer supplies spacers, doesn't mean they're pre-load meant. They're all meant to adjust for shock ride height, since you have a variety of shock mounting positions, NOT all positions will provide perfect ride height, enter the spacers (for rough adjustment) or threaded shock body for fine tuning.
