    Put the washers in the front leave them in, And adjust the rear with shims to were you want it handling wise.

    thanks jim. im assuming im going to level it out as if it were a direct bolt on with no washers so that i dont have to much of a drop from my pump shoe to the rideplate. For the best do i want it level or so the rear of the plate is sloping up or down? sorry for the ignorence. never really cought onto this angle theory.

    im running jims FF plate with 1 shim at the front like jim says,a nd 2 shims under the back... handles the chop nicely and a better ride than stock.

    Correct you do not want a big drop from the plate to the pump shoe.
