    I asked a similar question a while back, and he said I could use degree shims with zero rates. He told me first to lower the tcase first to try and solve my vibration problem, then to use degree shims second. If you are going to use degree shims with the offset zero rates, that might be a totally different story though. Hope this helps.

    The zero rates bolt in just like a leaf so you can treat them just like a leaf. So you can put the shim right under them and be fine. You can also sandwich the shim between the spring and zero rates to keep them captured better.

    Even after you ruined the solid steel blocks by welding to them (?) I think I'll replace them if you can break them. :-)
