    The most common for the K5's have been between 2-4 degrees depending on which transfer case your running. There are other irregularities which can skew it of a degree or two between similar setups.

    I bought some 8 degree shims from Roger and they were not the same thickness. He cuts them using a band saw and the accuarcy of the cut is not exact.

    This place also sells steel shims.
