Answer: 

It sounds like you needed those spacers underneath your headset's dustcap to account for an improperly machined bearing cup. This is fairly common. The top of your headtube should go like this, going up: bearing cup (integrated, hopefully), bearing, headset spacers, dustcap, then bars/compression/clamp.
