    Stephen, There has been the talk of getting zero-rates machined at an angle for those who need it, but I had a thought and wondered if it might work. Could you first bolt the shim to the zero-rate in the 1.5 offset position, and then bolt this assy to the spring with the hex bolt? I can't tell from the pics whether this would make the shim hang over the edge of the zero-rate which would be bad. If the zero-rate is long enough, it might work. Thoughts?
    Thanks,
    JT

    It might but I'm not really capable of seeing that in my mind right now since I'm a little screen wiggy (typing for a long time).
    It would also depend on if you're using the offset feature or not.
