This sounds like a safety related question, it's better if you ask a certified person. Not sure.

You'll be fine since you are running a square setup with spacers.

That means that all spacers will need same width?

You'll be fine. I have 15mm on my rear and none on the front. No AWD issues.

All your tires have the same diameter I'm assuming. Just because the wheels are spaced out doesn't change the rolling diameter.
