    Thanks for your order of the shims! They are going in the mail to you tomorrow. Be on the look out for a red envelope.

    Thank you!

    Nope....I would prefer in between the spring washers BUT thats just me...Also check out other thread on slip..there is a way to re-configure your spring washer to acheive a higher slip without using shims...
