    I recently bought 10-deg shims from JKW, and they are the best quality shims I have found. They are machines, not forged and he counter bores the bolt hole so there is no bending stress put into the leaf pack bolt.

    www.wofconcepts.com also has them. Just dont use the cheap alum ones. They will crack and break.
