Rear differential shim
How to I check to make sure I shim the rear differential properly?/ Does anyone have or know of a manual or guide to do it properly?
Check out my install thread (you'll see it in my signature if you view this on a real computer). You need some specialized tools including a dial caliper, plus you need to know some specs. The FSM tells you most of what you need to know. A novice can do it but it will be slow going.
My do-it-yourself install thread for a TrueTrac in the rear, upgraded shafts, and a PowerTrax No-Slip in the front:
Are you talking about shims inside the diff when doing gear setup? In which case, the answers you have already are fair. Or are you thinking shimming of the axle to properly orient the pinion? If that is what you are thinking, you don't have leaf springs. With a coil sprung vehicle you need adjustable control arms to set the pinion angle.
