Axle Shims

hey i have an 2002 ford ranger with a 3.5'' spindle lift with a 3 inch body lift. I am about to add a add-a-leaf, drop shackles, and torsion keys to get 3 inches more lift, to put 38'' tires. I was wondering if anyone knew a place where i could find axle shims for rangers so i would have a good drive angle. thanks.

Torsion keys won't do crap.....but they will do something for ya.....make you replace your ball joints often.

Axle shims are avaliable at probably any auto parts store.....or any 4x4 shop.

Good luck on fitting 38's on your 2wd edge(assuming that's what you got). Cuz I can't, and i've got 4" suspension, 3" body, 2" cranked bars, and 35's. Believe me...you'll need more lift in the front AND more in the rear.
