    I got a set of 7 degree shims for mine from them. Good quality and quick responses. $30 to $40 bucks a pair or he will make custom ones. I had to get new centering pins for mine. I got them at NAPA. Pretty cheap. they are the bolts that hold the leaf spring pack together. The shim is bolted to the spring pack and the head of the bolt sits in the center of spring perch on the axle.

    Do a search for front axle shims and do some reading. Some good posts about this.
