Like this????
I'm going to make a guess that what you have is camero control arms on your monty frame that would explain the wider control arms....I cant tell you why
The camero has an 11" rotor but a 95 caprice and Impala are interchangeable and have a 12" rotor but you have to use the caprice spindle and ball joint with the control arm ....one more thing ,the GM also has a metric version with the 11" rotor thats a bit different it has a smaller caliper than the regular one and a different track width...

the shims are for the alignment its not unusual to see a few on either side thats how they set the caster and camber to lean the tire in and out from the top
