    I have an All-Pro Expo pack, Bilstein 5100s, and U-Bolt flip kit I'm installing. With a brand new pack do I need shims? If so what degree and why? It's my understanding they prevent axel wrap but I could be wrong. If they will help on the potential for vibration, I'm all about it. Just looking for some guidance.

    Thanks.

    Hmm, okay. I've read a lot of people having problems with centering bolts being long enough with shims to seat properly. It actually look like on my Spring Pack that All-Pro has one of those spacers that I've seen people recommend you buy, already installed?! I'm fairly new but can anyone confirm or deny? I need to call All-Pro probably the easiest thing.

    I'm running the Expo's and I have very little vibes & no shims!

    Also, 5100's won't fit with the Expos as they are too short, they'll top out, it'll be okay on the road but I recommend getting new shocks!

    I got the 3-4" 5100's vice the 2-3" 5100's, I think the best thing is for me to call All-Pro.
