MOST of the time, from what I've read, the bolted diffs need no adjustment. I'll find out soon if they do
Hmm how much are the shims to purchase? Sounds like a wise choice to buy these prior to dropping the diff out of the car and then waiting weeks for them to arrive (well for me anyway residing downunder in Australia)
