    what do you need to know? /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif


    I had my own question though. not to hi-jack. But since the shims are off-set are they drilled on both sides? I am in need to rotate the shim 180* to fix my drive-line angles. But I didn't want to take it apart and find that it won't work?

    Derek, I do not know why the shims do not work unless you changed something else. Remember that the center hole in the shim is for the short bolt to the spring perch and the offset hole is for the sping bolt. If that is turned around it would cause a problem. If it is setup correctly the wheel should be pretty well centered in the wheel well. Noi matter what the problem is if you talk to me about it I will try my best to help. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I was just wanting to find the link because a friend has a First gen Bronco and was looking to do something simular. But I am curious: could this set up be pinned for highway use so I could tow with it? I wouldnt ever try to tow a blazer but I would like to ba able to tow my race car or a Ski Boat.

    well, my angle isn't horrendous but it does get a bit a vibration when accelerating at low speeds and decelerating from high speeds. I have a CV. I was just curious cause I was probably going to try and cure it if I ever had a long boring weekend.

    Got me 6" but I hear you can choose between four and six.

    If you have a drill, a few friends, and a hole saw you can knock it out in 1 day easy.
