refering back to anti squat...when shimming, wouldn't you want to shim the pivot block rather than the toe block for the rear. and i have a question about the setup sheets why do some people have different values for anti- dive/squat ex. in the following link, http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/hotb...za20070503.pdf
in the front he has f 1.0mm r 1.5mm. what is the purpose for this, and how would you read that? is it a 1.0 shim on the right and 1.5 under the left?
thanks for the help!!!

He would have the 1.0mm shim on the front toe block and a 1.5mm shim on the rear pivot block at the front bulk head, if that makes sense.

They sure would. They offer more support to the suspension blocks than a typical shim too.

why would you want to shim up the same amounts on both toe and pivot blocks? wouldn't that still give the same value as without using any shims/washers under both. sorry for my newness, just trying to better understand how/why to make tuning changes. thanks!!!
