    I am planning on buying a set of the zero rate add a leaves for the saggy rear on my Jimmy. I know they are around $30 a set. I want to install a degree shim at the same time because I have a little vibration in the rear because of my 2.5" lift. What degree shim should I use? Do you sell them, and if so how much? Thanks

    Oh ya, will I need longer u-bolts? If so how much? Thanks again.

    Instead of a shim try dropping the t case a little. If you do shim it I think the smallest you can get is 2 degree. Not sure if ORD sells them though. As far as u bolts go if you have over an inch sticking out above the nuts they should work but if not you need new ones.

    Measure for the ubolt, that way you know you're safe with the old, or can buy new. They're $38.00 for the set.
    I'd measure the driveline angles and see what exactly you need to do with the pinion and t-case, that way you can work on the right part. Check <a target="_blank" href=http://www.4xshaft.com>www.4xshaft.com</a> for the right alignment.
    hope this helps.
    we do carry 2.5 degree shims if you need one. I think they're $17.00 or so.
