You definetly need the shim. They're only a few bucks, so cost isn't a big factor. However, you may have a hard time finding one.

Yeah, you will have a hard time finding engine head compression shims. The only place I can find them was from an online shop in Hong Kong. Its funny how something thats A MUST is impossible to find. There is always a surplus of those aluminum T-MAXX a-arms though.

Be careful while handling them. They are very fragile and bend very easily.
