I'm looking for some where, where I can order different thickness ones.
Back in the day when I ran brushed motors I could get them everywhere.

Our Dirtz Dialed Partz DDP025 gives you 8 shims each, .030" and .010", They are anodized aluminum. Meant primarily for suspensions, they will work in brushed motors. www.xfactorystore.com

Suspension slop, not travel. Back and forth movement on the hinge pins, up and down movement on the king pins etc.
