    No shims for me.....4 inch tapered blocks and lowered t-case 1". I probably should add some shims, but I've been runnin it like this for a year or more....I won't say it's trouble free...I've gone through 3 or 4 u-joints during that time....Alittle food for thought. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    I just run the stock driveshaft and have no vibs on acceleration. I have a vib, but it's cause I broke a wheel stud the other day which threw the wheel outta balance. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
