If your running 2mm+ shims on the bulkheads and using the plastic outdrives, IMO you'll most likely break them as the pin on the driveshaft does not sit far enough into the cup. I've seen them break with 1.5mm shims on the bulkheads as well but less often.
The cheapest option for you is to shim out the outdrive by putting a washer in between the outdrive and where it connects to the spool. You'll need to grind the washer into a square-ish shape as so that it will fit into the spool part.
Of course you can also get aluminum outdrives that use blades.
