Questions: Will the shim pack kit help with proper wheel alignment? I recently replaced kingpin bearings on one side and now the tire is wearing out on the outerside but the wheels are straight with each other.

It sets preload on the bearings for your king pin.

Questions: Got a 1955 Willys 3 cjB, before she went to a mechanic I've never experienced death wobble but now i have it. can the shims be replaced or taken off from one side only? also bottom ones do not have any shims, would i need to put some on? thank you.

You usually need shims on each side. They really are only needed either top or bottom but im sure you could do both to equal out. I would get part number: SJ-7100 to help out too.

They will interchange. The main thing is make sure your ring & pinion ratios are the same.

Questions: My manual doesn't address how many or which thickness shim (s) should go under the top and bottom king pin block. How do I find out how many shims are need and where?
Question By: David Bradshaw on Mar 30 2013 12:00 AM
You typically can shim either - we usually do equal amounts till you receive the proper pivot tension when turning the wheel.

Questions: The manual states that there should be a .058 shim in the lower knuckle pin bracket. Does this kit have one as mine had none when I disaasembled it?

Yes it will have the proper shims in it.
