Yeah I found them. They have the shims for both versions of the front end.

Is there anyplace to get them in the U.S.? Exchange + international shipping = suck.

Does Fibre Lyte still make shims? They were really nice back in the day.

What rear ride height adjusters do you guys like? I had been running Xray because they are nicely finished and numbered but I recently figured out that they are slightly smaller and allow for up and down axle play so I am on the hunt for something else.

I always used the IRS adjusters. Fit is very good on them. I don't think they changed since they were bought out.

I had a bunch of the CRC ones left over from a car I got from you. They work just fine. No play that I can detect.

The side links on a rev 8 are a lot longer. If you want to use molded links on a rev 7 you can use the CRC 3281 links and 13615 or 13616 balls.
