so you only have a 3" drop in back? thats got to make for a really big rake.
for the shims with a 3" drop in back 2* should be fine. if you need to shim the carrier which you shouldn't with that drop. i would guess about 3/8" at most. but you still should measure all the angles if it has a bad vibration imo.

You will have effectivley a 3.5/3 drop...and its gonna be raked pretty good. Whatever floats your boat. You need no shims with a 3" rear drop as far as i know. Install it, drive it, and see what happens. Post again after you do it. There is no magic number for this stuff.
