    Prolly been asked and answered a couple hundred times but since I'm a dumba$$ I've missed it but where do they go? Between the spring perches and the spring or just where?

    Thanks in advance good folks.

    Flip shims? Are you talking about the tapered shims to correct pinion angle? If so, yes they bolt to the spring pack(with new center pin) and go between the spring pack and perches.

    Allan , those shims I gave you won't work like that , a longer bolt is good idea so it goes through and into the perch , they are just the slip in there ones , for 12 bucks thats waht you get . If you had REAL tapered shims ( just like zero rates ) they would bolt to the pack :k5: :k5:
