    If I need to shim the rear axle and intend to install zero-rates, should the shim go on the top or bottom side of the zero-rate? My initial thought would be to treat the zero rate as a helper spring, and set the shim beneath it. But not sure how that would work if I need to use the offset. Help a Newbie out....

    Zero rate bolts to the spring pack. Shim must go below.

    I think they will cut angles into the zero rate for you.

    Give a call you can get the Zero rates milled to act as a shim as well as the extra lift.
