Rubicon Express RE1469 - Rubicon Express Solid Steel Shims for 2.5" Wide Leaf Springs - Quadratec Many places sell them, this is just one example. The shims aren't welded in, they are bolted to the leafpack with the centerpin. Jeffro was saying that you could have the spring perches cut off, then rotate the axle to the proper angle and have them welded back on. This would eliminate the need for the shims.

Notice how the pinion angle is rotated up?
I've always wondered how shims are supposed to work when in concert with SYE/CV.
