darkproximity So you're taking a smaller degree shim out and adding a bigger degree shim?

whY402Jay Let me clarify even more... I already had shims on there, probably came installed on them when PO lifted it. I am going to raise it a couple degrees more. And that is why there are shims already on them.`

whY402Jay Sorry I didn't clarify. But no, the rear end. When we took the axle off, the shims had the high side facing front and my friend thought the spring was put in backwards.

darkproximity I assume you're trying to correct the front end?

One of my buddies says that his understanding is that the high side is supposed to be facing the back. I thought otherwise. Was he referring to SOA? I just don't want to lower my pinion even more.
