Where can I find pinion shims that will fit our Dana 80 axles. I need a 2-3 degree shim in mine now.:-(

Your local Dana/Spicer distributor or a good driveline shop should have them.

They are normally called axle shims so that might be why you are having trouble finding them. Pinion shims are used in the housing to locate the pinion or set the preload.

If you go into Google and type in axle shim it brings up a ton of sites. The Dodge leaves are 3" wide. Can even type in 2* axle shim or 3* axle shim to narrow it down.

I've tried everyplace I can find and even ordered a set from Summit that was labeled as 3 inches wide. Now that they are in my hands they are only 2 1/4 inches wide.

Everyplace I have talked to sells them for the 2 1/2 in wide springs, even the ones listed as for the Cummins are mislabeled just like all the poly fittings for these springs.
