Swift Sport lowering springs give about a 1" drop in front and in the rear. A 15mm spacer front and 20mm spacer rear can be used. Whether it will be flush may depend on how much negative camber you run, the front camber will be about -2 degrees or more after the drop, additional negative camber may be needed depending on front tire size and if the shoulder tread blocks are square or rounded on a given tire model.

Further, spacers come in different designs. A basic spacer may need longer wheel studs and open lug nuts, the OEM studs are too short. Or you can use a type II wheel spacer that fits over the OEM studs and extends studs that can be used with OEM closed nuts. This type II design is not as strong and not for track use, light street use is OK. Although some stress can be placed on wheel bearings it is not something that is a common problem. I wouldn't suggest spacers for drag racing or high stress driving.
