    I am waiting for my new driveshaft from HAD, Jess said instead of running a 6* shim I should cut my perches and move them. Which sounds like a great idea, but a little more work than I would like to do. I am not all too hardcore on this thing soI believe shims would be alright. Just looking for others opinions

    id shim it, it does the same thing, and is much easier.

    Are you running some kind of crazy lift or really funky driveline? Jess knows his stuff, I'm sure he wouldn't recommend moving the perches for only 6* on the rear, but ya never know. Use steel shims if you do go that route.

    Does anyone know where to get some shims? I got a set of 2* from tuff country from our supplier, $14 shipped, now they want double that for 6*. I figured I could find some cheaper, anyone know where?
