Dropped with spindles----Where can I get these shafts----I'm gettin ready to call Air Ride and ask 'em if they have heard of this before. On the rear of the shafts (after 1st alignment), there was 1/2" of shims on one side and 7/16 on the other. No shims at all on the front of the shaft. Caster was +1 (or close to it) on both sides but the Camber came in @ -.7 on both sides.
I don't want to think that perhaps I ended up with a set of funky arms (fluke).
But, it is a possibility that should not be overlooked. I know that -.7 is not tooo bad, but it does kinda make the car look like it is ready to collapse. (optical illusion)

And I am pretty sure that I should not be having 1/2" difference in the shim-paks front to rear.

Sooo----are these shafts offset fron and rear---or just the front??
