    I have just received shims form ToyTec for my planned suspension upgrade (OME with Dakars). Take a look. Do any of you have 'channels' or 'grooves' on one side of the bottom of your shims?

    To me, it looks as though the shims were cut from their poured casting incorrectly. Those channels are the snap/cut line. It would be one thing if they were identical, but because they are not, it caused me to become curious.


    Bottom (looks good):

    Other side (notice the groove on one side):

    lastly:

    Most importantly, should I be concerned??



    Thanks.

    I wouldn't hesitate to instal them. Once they are bolted down they won't be going anywhere.

    You are good to go man, now if there was a problem with the hole where the bolt goes through then it would be a issue. Yours look just like mine when i got them. It's just a shim, once there on your truck they aren't going anywhere.
