Great answer Bick!

I will say that the anit-seize and wire brush are optional items. If your car is new or you has minimal rust, you can use a brillo pad or any firm brush to clean the area. As long as the area the spacer is touching is clean, you are ok. Sometimes small patches of rust or debris can cause it to not sit flush. The tolerance is pretty tight on these Turner spacers - which is great!!

I used a 17mm deep socket:

You can see the square jack point Bick was talking about :

My jack has a large rubber seat, so luckily no damage occurred. If you want to play it safe, you can get on of these from BMS:

Best wishes bro. It would be great to see some pics
