Default dynamite max life clutch shoes

I am installing them. I noticed that it is raised a little where i would normally put the shim or washer on the flywheel. Problem is, i did not notice until i put 2 shoes on. I have washers under them. Can i leave the washers on? Or if i have to take the shoes and washers off, are the springs still good. Because i don't have any more.

How do you guys like these shoes? I have a set, but have not tried it yet. I'm running mugen shoes with 1.1's.

FWIW, as long as the flywheel pins are long enough to go completely through the shoes, there's no reason not to run the washers, they won't hurt anything.

They last longer than the Mugen shoes, and cost less. I run them all the time now.
