    I'm putting my new springs on this weekend. they are 3" Tuff countrys. I have a 2.5" on there now but it sucks, its just add-a-leafs. There is one shim down there, the other one popped out and I replaced it with one but its not made for a lift. What degree should I have to shim it up? The one that is not good enough is 2.5 degrees.

    Under the front springs you should run a 2degree shim on lifts. I would probably make sure they are even just to be on the safe side. If you cant find another, then just dont install them, I dont think it will matter to much if you r only running 3" springs
