    I will be adding an ORD 4" shackle flip in the rear and I was wondering if I need to buy shims if I am getting a CV shaft. If so how many degrees? Thanks.

    I believe that the shims are going to vary from setup to setup. If your rear shrings are newer the amount of sag would be less. The older the spring the more. I dont think I can tell you and be exact. I would do the shackle flip and check the angle on the shaft to see if you are within the specified tolerance(sp?) for the CV tyoe shaft. I try not to run more than 10-15 deg. max with one.
