Reading through the various Old Man Emo threads it sounds like the OME front springs don't add any ride height. Can anyone confirm?

I've been looking at the OME upgrade for a while but haven't felt like fixing what isn't broken. Now my struts, balls joints, and end links all need replacing but it's not a great time to be spending $$$ (how do parts know when it's the worst time to break). The mom & pop shop that has been taking care of my Rav for the last 10 years is recommending complete struts with new springs, and seems silly pay for new springs and not upgrade to the OMEs.

The shop says they're happy to buy complete struts without springs and use the ones I give them, but I want to be sure I can have the front OME and the back OEM until I can get the rear OME parts in to match. Once the rear is also OME I can (probably myself) add the 1" spacer to the front to level the ride. Anyone see any problems with this plan?
