    those are ur axle shims to improve drive line angles to reduce shudder upon take off

    IIRC, they go between ur leaf pack and axle...i've never had those so im not too sure

    thats correct. they go with the thick part facing the rear of the vehicle, rotating the axle up and reducing pinion angle.

    good luck on the install.

    There are plenty of people are on here that will help you fix a problem if you run into one on install.

    When your figuring out your install.... Just log on. Search first. If you can't find out how, post a thread and someone will help.

    now i live in Big Lake, 55 miles outside of anchorage, and yes moose is everywhere near me, i see at least 1 -2 moose on my commute to work everyday. > future mod is a beefed up bumper.....nearest neighbor is about 100yards away and a 1001 trees inbetween...... its so quiet and Im loving it...wife is not so sure, we are one step closer to being snow birds, moving to tampa during the winter and coming back up in april thru sept.... just happy the house sold....now we can seriously look for a home near tampa...!!!! that is my wifes bird!!!! she is really anal about it.....i told her to keep it in storage in the city and she couldnt leave it there..... she drove like 1-mph down the dirt road to get it here.....I was like wtf ! woman........i was happy to get home that day.

    didn't get a chance to install, wife had some honey dew's that i could not get out of> chimney cleaning, new washer and dryer, and had to clear some brush from the cabin and septic area, some heavy rain the last few days and the killed some serious mushrooms from the property and hopefully killed 3 ant nest i found today........gonna have to wait a day or so to start the install..........
