you need 2 degree axle shims and put them in with the fat part forward so it shims your rear axle down. when you have a u joint axle, you want the angle at your tranny and the angle at your rear diff to be opposite to cancel eachother out. also turn your blocks around or get rid of them for AAL's but they are cut with a small inclination to shim your axle also. pickin up what im puttin down?

should take care of it, also turn the blocks around if you plan to keep them.

Shouldn't the fat part of the shim be rearward, to reduce the angle caused by the lift?
I've not done it, so I really don't know... that's just what makes sense in my head.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.
