Default Hi-steer arm spacers

Is there anything wrong with installing a spacer under a steering arm? Ive seen companies that offer them but are they very safe? My buddies truck has shakerbuilt arms with 3" spacers. I could use some more clearance on my tie rod but I dont want to get on the pages of scary steering.
If I made a spacer, I would tap a couple holes in it and bolt it onto the arm to prevent any movement.
Thanks,
Chris

I've never been a fan of spacers. They had a LOT more stress to the arm. More shear load on those little studs. I too have seen them. How about a dropped pitman arm instead? How bad is your angle?
