Default Is this the purpose of a clutch shim kit?

I replaced the clutch on my Force .28 from the factory ofna clutch to a JLR clutch which has a smaller flywheel and aluminum shoes. When I put the clutch bell back on I get almost 2mm of play if I move the bell housing in and out. To me this sounds like too much, my LX2 has very little play in it. It feels like it needs another 2 washers totalling 4.

Is this the purpose of a clutch shim kit? Or is there something else wrong that I need to address?

Thanks

Sometimes there is a short room to mount the clutchbell and sometimes there is too much room. For most part it is caused by the flywheel cone where there are many differences. But yes, you need to place some shims to lower the axial play and be sure the clutch bell is not touching the flywheel.
