Whether you need a spacer, and/or how much spacer is easy for you to determine for yourself. The cassette has to overhang the front of the freehub body by about 1mm so that the lockring can compress the cassette without bottoming on the freehub. If you've ever serviced a threadless headset you understand the principal involved, won't evern need to ask about any other hub/cassette combination.
