On the same topic kind of. I installed a 4000 GSK in my truck yesterday afternoon (Very simple install by the way. In the instruction it said to remove all of the stock inner springs, the factory lower seat and Any shims I could not see very well through the hole, and I tried to stick my magnet in there to pickup any shims that may be in there but I could not find any. How common is it that there will be shims in there? If there are shims in there what is the easiest way to get them out? I couldn't find any so I'm pretty sure there were none. I installed the new springs and everything went back together fine. But it is kinda in the back of my head that I may have left a shim in there that I could not see. Any suggestions?
