    Yes, the 14ff is eaiser than those shims on the 12 bolt. I have a suggestion though. If you are going with 4.88's, why not 5.13's? You obviously want it low, and based on my experience that small of a change wont affect driveability on the street too overly much, but if you went 4.88's you will always come to a situation offroad where you wish you had more gear. Also, Detroit lockers are about half the price of an arb (even though the detroit is an auto locker) and are one of, if not, the strongest locker on the market.
