Hello all, I am thinking of getting the DJM 3/4 lowering kit. I was told I should get pinion shims....what are those?

I am in the same boat. I got an estimate to lower it, and it would cost me $1,040 including labor. does that sound like a rip off? I have never lowered trucks

That's an ok qoute I guess and not pining shims but carrier bearing shims


If you have an ext cab you will need a carrier bearing shim to correct the drive shaft angles http://shop.illusivefabrications.com...ring-shim-kit/

Yes the carrier bearing shim is necessary on extra cabs and make sure you get new shocks with the 3/4 kit

You need rear shocks more than front shocks, Drop beams do not change the mounting location for the shocks but Doetsch Nitro Slammers will ride and handle a lot better.
