    Looking for some 1* to 3* steel rear axle shims. Just did a little search online. the couple places I checked don't have them for the 05+ Tacomas. For those of you that have shimmed you axle, where did you get them from?

    got mine from toytech after i put their AAL and adj coilover's on. Realized I needed a little extra angle on the rear axle to get rid of the shakes.

    The ones on Toytec's site are Zinc.....? Why is that? Why not Steel?
