Question Bolt Torque, Plugs, etc

I just ordered from Pelican 6 new coils and 6 plugs. should be here by Friday. My CEL flashing was a misfire in 3 and 5 cylinder. no other issues reported through my durametric cable.

Question. When I take my wheel off and then put it on. I believe the torque is 96ft lbs. BUT - the car has spacers on the back...I did not add them. came on the car. Would the torque on the lug bolts still be 96ft lbs or is it different when you have a spacer???

The torque would be the same, as torque is determined by bolt diameter

It's the same torque spec.
