I came across a good deal on a 2012 R3 frame size 56.

I used to ride on a 2009 R3 and R3SL in size 56 too.
Stem 110 with 2cm spacers
Seat height from center BB 77cm
Seat to handlebar 55cm

-Can anyone tell me the seattube length on the 'new' R3 geo from center BB to top of seattube?
-Could I go with a 56cm 'new' R3 geo frame with a 120mm stem and less spacers?

Log on to the Cervelo website and compare the geo charts of current S2 model (identical geo to pre 2011 R-series frames) to geo of current R-series frames. Your objective should b to focus on STACK and REACH values across sizes (seattube length is sort of irrelevant) and find the new frame that most closely matches old geo specs. If u were riding a 58 in old geo with only 2cm of spacers u will likely be most comfortable on a new geo 56.

The newer R3 has a taller headtube. If you used 2cm of spacers under the stem...you can probably take those out.
