.030 shims under the pivot blocks in the high or low roll position? like .030 higher than low roll, or .030 higher than high roll?

His setup said mid roll center so I would assume he added the spacers to the low roll center setting

0.030 above low roll center, which is almost mid roll center. I personally prefer to run low front and the low +0.030 in the rear (for rubber on asphalt). This is what I went to (my standard) for the last round of qualifying at the Reedy and it gave me my best run.
