What is it? ID these shims?

Ok, bought a used ARB on E-bay. This set of five shimms was in the "box-o-goodies" that came with the Locker. Locker is installed and running good.
But was just wondering what these shimms might be used for?
Thanks

Re: What is it? ID these shims?

they look like they would go between the halves of the locker, but my d-44 ARB doesn't have them.

Re: What is it? ID these shims?

just a guess, but are there 2 different lockers for the different carrier breaks? could they be used to make a one carrier fits all by shimming?

Re: What is it? ID these shims?

I couldn't find anything on either the Dana 30 or 44 lockers/Axles/ or T/C that would match that bolt pattern. Maybe on a Dana 300 T/C??? What would you shimm on a T/C?
All five of the shimms are of different thickness.

Re: What is it? ID these shims?

I'm sure you saw in the instructions to check axle end play. Those shims, if needed, go between the brake backing plate and the axle tube end to give more end play. Not enough end play will tear up the inside of the ARB.

Some kits have them, some don't.

Thanks Rich

I took another look at the instructions (two different sets, one generic to Dana's & one specifec to Dana 44) but nothing in either mentions the shimms. Also nothing in either parts list. Way too large and not enough bolt holes for my equipment.
Sooooooo ......
I assume that they are not needed on a Dana Axle?
Wonder what axle they do fit?
What axle has 5 bolts at the brake backing plate?
Anyway, anyone need them .... I apparently don't (I hope) Free plus postage.

4 are backing plate bolt holes, plus one's the drain hole at the bottom - same sized hole as the bolt holes.

Some of those shims were tapered, to set Camber as well as end play.
