In the rear suspension, what are the shims to do? And where are they? I thought they had something to do with the modifying of the alignment, but how so? And location, where are they located?

Thanks!! :D

I know shims are used at the trailing arms...but I don't know where else.

Do they adjust/correct toe-in/out? I think that's what I remember. Something to do with alignment, just don't know what.

Thanks! :)

Yes they do adjust, to keep your wheels from looking like this.
\ / / \ pretend your looking from the top of your wheels.

they should be like this | | then your strut rod will adjust
the other way. Hope i made sense :w the way i did this.
