    I am running a Rough Country 6" Lift onmy truck. Did anyone use their degree shim on the front when you moved your axle forward woith the zero rates? Quickest replies appreciated as I am knee deep in an axle swap right now.

    i moved my axle fwd 1.5 inches on 4 inch(i think) springs. i used 4 degre shims, BUT have yet to put the driveshaft on.

    so i guess im no help. the angle looks about right, but until i hook it all up i can say for sure.

    also it depends on what t-case you have, along with tranny and front axle. they all play a small part along with shackles as well. then you have to add in if you have dropped your t-case as well.

    Stacking shims on top of zero rates is not safe in my opinion.
