    A bit frustrating there appears to be no website for Coachbuilder. Looking to buy shims for my otherwise stock '17 Limited CM. Would I need longer bolts as well? If so do you sell these?

    Thanks-

    Web search and you'll find vendors like dirtydeeds. The bolts are good for 2 shims a side without issue.

    Is there enough space to add two CB shims and tighten safely on a 2014 Trd

    Why the recommendation to use 2 on driver side and one on passenger side? Wouldn't you just need one on the driver side to eliminate lean?

    I get that, but if the intent is to even it out, adding two on driver side and one on passenger side would be the same as just adding one on driver side and leaving passenger, alone right?

    correct. I cant read.

    But i think the main goal is to get the 1 inch of lift. Correcting the lean is just a lucky side effect

    What i understand Is that the 5100's has three settings. .87 1.57 2.28 the middle setting gives you the best ride and the extra shim Kicks you up 1/2 inch to about 2 lift level with rear the second shim on driver side fixes the lean of 1/2 inch

    This is usually how we set the Bilsteins up, Adding the extra shim on the driver side corrects the lean and then bumps you up to 3".
