I would put the gap opposite stem bolts. This smooths out the split rather than exaggerating it.

Given the thin spacers, put the shim on the bottom. I assume the shim has a lip and the spacers will go against that lip rather than the stem, like this:

Thin Ti spacers are tricky for this reason. I have a thin shim like that, but I'm using a 1" stem, no shim. If you don't have a lipped spacer don't use the Ti spacers.

1 1/8" top cap.
