    It's been a while since I've visited the site. Glad to see it's still pretty active.

    Got a question regarding the upper control arm shims on my 04 XLT 2wd. Can anyone tell me what colored shim goes into each mounting location? Out of the four shims, there are 2 yellow, 1 white, and 1 orange with each color shim having its hole drilled in a different location. Because of this, it's pretty clear they belong in specific locations and o want to make sure it goes back together correctly.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Those are not "specific" to a spot.... Each color represents a range of adjustment. Thus the shop will put in what one is needed based on what's needed to align the truck. Most are just an oval washer that you turn, I haven't seen the colored washers installed in years..

    Thanks for the reply, Todd. Just picked up some camber adjustment bolts, so I guess that resolves that issue.
