    Ok, I'm having a total brain fart today and can't think worth a crap for some reason. I've got some tapered offset shims from Az-kickin to fix pinion angle and to offset my rear axle BACK 1", but for the life of me I can't figure out which hole to use. I know the center one is for the pin to perch, but if moving the axle BACK 1" which hole do i use to bolt the offset block to the spring pack?

    As you look at the picture the bolt should go thru the hole on the left and bolt to the spring pack. The middle bolt is for the spring perch. This will move the axle back and rotate the pinion angle up.
