Let us know what degree shims you install and if they help.So lately this thread might as well be called, "What have you done to you Land Cruiser Today?" because I am making so much progress! I drove it to work Monday and Tuesday. Monday on the drive home I was contemplating the steering being all over the place at speed. So a little MUD research led me to the fact that my 5 inch long shackles have screwed up the CASTER, which is actually super important, don't ignore the CASTER LOL. So new shims are on order now from @orangefj45 Georg at Cruiser Brothers,: I'll report on their affect next week.

Some of the carb gurus are going, "DUH", right now. I'd like to know all the insanely technical reasons why honestly So long story short, for now, I am going to run it like this.... but where should it really be connected from the factory? To the air cleaner?
