SRAM Red GXP crank installation

Hi,
I'm trying to install a Sram Red GXP crank on a Cervelo S5 2014 with a Wheels Manufacturing Bottom Bracket but I have a hard time compressing the wave washer enough that it's almost flat. The Wheels Mfg installation guide says to add some cup spacer on the non drive side but if I do that, my chainring is rubbing against my chainstay. Should I add spindle spacers instead ? On which side ?
Thanks for the help.

i know you usually add the thicker spacer on the drive side , but if its hitting the frame you might not need one , just the internal ring adapters , but each company deals with gxp in a different way !!!!
