axle shims

Hi everyone

Ive worked out that I need 8 degree axle shims to correct the angle of the pinion, I have seen several articles saying that shimming 8 degrees is not a
good idea!
Rather than grinding off and welding new axle perches would it be safe to weld angled perches on top of my current perches?
At the same time I want to lower the car by 1 inch so I was going to mill
myself some angled shims/blocks

I didn't weld the perches in wrong place I paid someone to do it for me!! Wish I did it myself and I wont let him have my car again.

Thanks in advance
