    Okay, some progress today. I dropped my car off at the shop to get shimmed and aligned. I just got a text with the initial specs of where it's sitting.



    Here a shot of the shim going in. This would be on the front portion of the rear axle (passengers side).



    More pics to come of post shim alignment.

    Thanks to MarvinTheMartian for doing the work

    No problem. Each "kit" is for only 1 side. So if you need to do both sides it will require at LEAST 2.

    Edit: just got word that I'm all done. They say it took 2 forward shims. So that's 2 kits for the one side. I did photo copy the shims so I have a template if anyone wants to make themselves some on the cheap.

    Very good thanks. As I figured, so I ordered two sets. If my alignment is off by a bit, hopefully one kit per side will do, or as in your case.

    I am just preparing ahead of time, so these may be up for sale, in the event my alignment is fine. My production date is after the printing date on these, so it may have been corrected at assembly or a non issue due to being a newer beam.

    I need to make a correction. It took two forward shims, but on both ends of the axle. I misunderstood the text I got. so if someone is doing this to correct toe, I suggest buying two kits. Because once you get in there may need an extra one.

    I need a good recommendation for camber bolts for the front. Anyone? I've looked and there seem to be many. But huge price differences from different locations.

    Im still a little confused. So you needed two kits (one forward shim on each side)? Or you needed four kits(two forward shims on each side)?

    One forward shim on each side. But each kit includes 1.)for and 1.)aft.

    I did drive it, but not enough to tell. But there's no way it will go unnoticed. Before, my ass end was super twitchy with bump steer. It can get a little hairy. Once I can push it in the corners I'll know more. But in the short drive home it didn't seem to wander as much.
