Where can I buy Dana 44 Camber shims???
So I was standing out in front of the YJ the other day admiring the new lift and axles and I noticed it appears I have some postive camber, as the top of the wheels are sticking out a bit. I did the alignment at home, so the toe angle should be within a 1/8 - 1/4 of an inch, but would this affect camber if it was off? The caster was set between 6-8 degrees.
I did some searching for this and I found that you can either use the camber/castor corrector tapered sleeves in the balljoints, or there is a shim that bolts in behind the spindle.
Does anyone know where I can find the shim that bolts in behind the spindle? Also is there a way I can measure for the number of degrees, like placing a level against the hub vertically and then use a degree finder on top?
Or would it be best to take it by the alignment shop and have them determine the amount of degrees positive it is and get the correct shim?
Thanks for the help.
