Spring Alignment Shim 2 Degree

Fits: 1948-64 Ford F-100 Trucks (Each truck takes 2)

Part Number: 2839-2

Sorry, this item is no longer available. See notes and alternate parts below.

**SAFETY NOTICE** To install shim safely we strongly recommend centering bolts with a longer head. See our part number 2835-F58.or 2836-SPC for rear spring.  USA made, Thicker end points towards the rear of the truck

 If you have a protractor level or one of the new digital readout levels, caster is easy to check just lay the gauge on the kingpin bosses so it is parallel with the kingpin and measure the angle off vertical. You want it leaning back at the top between 2 and 4*. If you put in shims be SURE they are installed to lean the axle top back towards the cab.

 If the needed shims do not let the center bolt of the spring protrude enough to register firmly into the hole in the axle spring perch you will need to add longer headed center bolts.
