    First way cool site haven't had much time to look around yas site until today very cool. I am also from the great state of Co. I'm currently stuck in Va. in the military.
    Anyway I'm seeking Iguess the are called shims that you put under the leaf springs to change the pinion angle. Well I despritately need these parts and I don't know who makes them or where I can get them cause the auto parts stores used to sell them and now they don't.
    I really dont have the option ot cutting my perches and adjusting accordingly just to weld every thing back together again.
    If any of you know what I'm talking about and know where I can get them please get back to me asap.
    Would very much appreitate it.
    Thankx

    In Maine I go to a place called Brake Service. They sell mostly stuff for BIG trucks but they also make drive shafts and U bolts and so on. Not sure what you have around there.

    If you can find a Auto or Truck spring shop, they should have them. 6 degrees shims are the biggest they make.

    If you live in a larger town, the auto parts store should be able to order them in.
