Instead of special metal disks I use CD's
Ive done that on both my buggys, my Xray had slop from new but as you said you must make sure you dont make it bind on the bearing. Takes alot of slop out when shimed properly.

The way wheels lever on the suspension places the upper links in tension. Same thing happens whether at rest or in cornering. So to answer your question you force the top of the wheel out. Although that's only necesary if you are using a hudy like setup station or discs, as they load the suspension opposite of what a wheel actually does. Negating thier usefulness IMHO.
