    I used 1/4 aluminum 1.375 x 2 and drilled a .375 hole in the middle.
    I dont have any more stock. Its easy to find. Also look for "old man emu
    carrier bearing shim kit" on google It is like 20.00 with shipping.
    It has new bolts and fabbed shims. It will help you out too..

    I did this mod this past weekend... 2006 DC Taco w/3" lift here... Driveline vibes are GONE... If you have the vibes and have a 3" lift... this is the way to go!

    Ive been getting a little bit of "shudder" from a dead take off. I think Im gonna try this and see if it helps. Could I just use a few washers as the spacers?

    true, I'll just cut up a few pieces of metal at my dads shop to do the trick. I was just trying to get out the easy way:eek: But your right, I should just take the time and do it right:cool:

    That's an even better idea... Oh and I should note that the kit I bought came with new lock washers, reg. washers, and two bolts.

    Instructions say to loosen both bolts FIRST, THEN pull out one bolt at a time to install each side one at a time.

    After I got both bolts threaded in and against the metal, I used a torque wrench and torqued down to 50ftlbs of torque.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but won't the aluminum spacer speed up corrosion where it contacts the frame and the bolts? The whole differing metals thing.

    try adding another set of 1/4 spacers in there. if it doesnt help....may need to add shims to the rear axle.....or get the transmission shudder tsb done(if that includes your truck).

    I have had the shims w/no spacer for the last 2 years and I had a shudder from take off. I just added the Old Man Emu spacer and it helped quite a bit. The shudder is still there but barely noticeable unless I am really feeling for it.

    I just did this and i used washers. 3 made it a 1/4 inch. there was a spacer already there from my lift but after the washers...unfreakin believable!!!!!!!! talk about smooooooth. I love it. Its amazing what a lousy 1/4 inch change in the driveshaft will do for you.

    this stuff works!!!!!!!!!!!!
