hey cj5 guys

Hey guys need your opinion got a 76 cj5 and bought a bds 2.5 lift put it in and rear drive shaft cocked pretty bad to the point the yolks are touching called ted aat bds nice guy. He said a 4 degree shim should take care of my problem so I figured I ask around what you thought I would show pictures but can't figure it out any advice would be apreciated.

Shim goes under the axle spring pad.
You may need longer center bolts for the spring-pack with the shim.
Try GOOGLE for more info.

A 2.5" lift and your yokes are touching? Something sounds really OFF there to me. I didnt need to do anything major till I used a 4" lift. Get a photobucket account and post the image link.
With a great Jeep comes an empty wallet.
