Nope, no spacer.  You can move all of the adjustment screws out 1/4" to 
match the other lights.  If I remember correctly, there sould be a good 
deal of threaded srcew on the head light side (maybe 2"..just guessing 
though) and very little to none at all sticking through the reinforcement 
panel side of the adjust plates.  If that's not it, make sure that the 
sidemarkers and turn signals are all the way back against the 
reinforcement panel.  On mine, it seemed like they would bind and sit 
crooked if I didn't pay close attention and tighten the two nuts each a 
little at a time.
