Ok,HERE GOES.......I RECOMMEND USING GRADE 8 WASHERS INSTEAD OF SHIMS ( IF URBOLTS EVER GET LOOSE U WONT HAVE SHIMS FLYN EVERYWHERE ).

PUT HOW EVER MANY U WANT BETWEEN THE EARS AND SHAFT OF A ARM,....THATS ON THE 2 BOLTS THAT HOLD UR UPPERS ONTO THE FRAME / EARS.


BE CAREFUL, IF UR UPPERS ARENT CUT OUT ENOUGH, BY PULLING THE ARM IN, U MAY HIT THE CYLINDER WHEN CAR COMES DOWN FROM HOPPING.....
