    I need to shim my rear axle due to some vibes. What would you guys think the average shim should be for a 2 1/2" lift? I do not want to lower the x fer case. Thanks for the input you may have for me!!!:grin:

    Angle finder is $9 at Home Depot in the tool section. Get one and measure. There is no way we can guess what shim you're going to need. There are simply too many variables.
