    Get some steel ones. There are a few guys on here that can make them and a lot on PBB that will do it too. I am having some custom length ones made for myself.

    Gotta get steel ones. that or just have someone make a set of zero rates for you with a 10* shim.

    The angle shims will crack if made from the cheap aluminum. If the two mating surfaces are completely flat, they tend not to crack. However, every axle i've seen is less than flat...
