Is it ok to use a Ring Gear spacer?

Hey guys, this winter im looking to assemble a new 7.5 10 bolt rear for my streetcar.

I have a new Auburn pro posi which is 2 series carrier.

I ran into a deal on a GM 3.73 ring and pinion set which must be 3 series if its GM.

Is it ok to use a ring spacer? I have been told that ring gear wont center correctly on the differential case because the ring will cover up the machined band around the case. Is this true?

All thoughts, opinions and experiences gladly appreciated.
