    I am replacing my axle housing with one from Proffitts and was wondering if I have to realign my knuckles with the new housing or just use the old shims? I will be using the original knuckles.
    Thanks

    Highly recommend getting new shims because it will likely need different sized ones and you won't have to wait.
