4.5" RC leafs to 4.5" Rusty's...

Hey guys. I bought my Cherokee with a full 4.5" RC lift kit. Rear has been sagging to the right side for some time now. Installing 4.5" Rusty's leafs now. Rusty's uses 6 leafs compared to RC's 5. Jeep has pinion angle shims. I'm assuming I should re-install the pinion angle shims, correct?

Jeep also has 1.75" coil spacers and lift shackles. Thanks and happy 4th everyone!

Thanks for your reply. I literally just put the Jeep back on the ground now. Pinion angle is not horrible looking with my eyes but I am going to measure it and see what I need. The shims were mated to the RC leafs and one broke into pieces, plus it wouldn't fit around the alignment pin on the Rusty's leafs...so I'll order new ones tomorrow...now I want to see if this sag is gone!!
