You can use them, but I wouldnt recommend using them for long. IMO and long story short, they are made from too soft a material. Most of us use aluminum #4617 shims.

Yes, you adjust the collars/nuts on the shock body for your height. Order yourself a pack of #31305 turnbuckle eyelets and use them instead of the ballcups for your shock shafts. They fit better and they are longer witch is better for a couple reasons.

Yeah, I would order some caster blocks, driveshaft blades and rear hubs for the most part. Extra arm mounts wouldnt be a bad idea either.

Sometimes you need to look in other parts bags to find the screws required for the section of the build you are on. I thought I had been shorted as well until I found the needed screws in a different parts bag.

Why do you need these? I've had minimal movement using the offset suspesion mounts and/or 12R5.1 bulkhead shims.
