What diameter shim? sorry, never done a flexible rate plate before.
Also the hole in the bracket is 9/16 the hole in the misalign is 5/8. Since i didn't realize this till after i bought new bolts and was in a rush to get it rolling again i threw in the 9/16 bolt. so i can swap that misalign to 9/16 and be done, or swap the other side to the 5/8 and drill both brackets and buy new bolts. I want to just run the 9/16 but just wanted to make sure that was ok. Ive always ran 5/8 before since thats what misaligns i had.
Thanks for the info! I assumed the reason for doing it, but couldn't tell you if id actually think about removing the factory rate plate lol.
Seals and bearings showed up today so i will be starting this adventure this weekend. Going to hopefully tear the front shocks apart and figure out shims so i can get those ordered. Then start the cleaning/coating process while i wait for shims to arrive.
That said I should probably order some brake parts i need. How are people feeling about running a long braided line in the front vs hardline down the radius arms?
Got the seals and bearings in hand, and a new koozie, and its the right color! thanks ShoskSeals.com!
I also cleaned up the interior after destroying it from messing with the radio. Decided to run current headliner and deal with it later when it gets caged. just need the drivers a-pillar trim to be totally happy with it.
Shock party this sunday! I will report back how it goes. Oh and picking these up from Travis (S00tlyfe) who got them from Travis (Travisfab). Should work for the meantime.
