The ones you have on there right now look like they provide the correct offset and will not result in shortened (outer) wheel bearing life. On your model year, front wheel bearing replacement means you get to buy a whole hub assembly to get that lonely outer wheel bearing, and to buy a quality assembly, like from Ford, rather than a crappy quality one, like from China on Ebay, it takes enough bucks (each) that it's gonna catch your attention. Check it out. The rears aren't so bad, mostly a matter of labor and not bearing cost, assuming you do the work yourself.
Something to think about is, if you want it to look *cool*, how many miles do you drive it per year and is the more than likely hub assembly cost worth it. If it's a secondary vehicle and you don't put very many miles on it in a year, then you may never eat up a wheel bearing(s). But as a daily driver, you've got something to consider, especially in light of those bearing already having miles on them. Not trying to rain on the parade here, but just to make you aware of the eventual consequences of altering the current zero offset to one that puts extra load and wear on the outer wheel bearing. If you do proceed with the spacers, and to keep you work moving without disruption, remember to buy longer wheel studs at the same time.
