I've read some of the threads on this swap, and read that shims may be needed. What are these shims, and where are they located? If needed, where do I get them? Also, what size snap ring is needed for the swap? Where do I get them?
The shims are just really thin washers. They go between the hub body and the snap ring to take up slop in the cv axle end if there is too much. As for where to get them, I dont know. Can probably get some from Jerry (jlemond) on here.
The snap ring is 26mm but a 1" snap ring works just fine and fits a bit tighter so less chance of it popping off again. Can get them at any parts stores.
