odd request, but anyone have a selection of 80 rear diff thrust shims I can borrow, when I regear next weekend? I will, of course, replace any I use and supply some beverages for their use

Same as pinion shims? I have a few of those. What's a thrust shim?

Not sure if they're the same size, would be nice as I hav a bunch too. On the 80 rears, they don't use a screw in side adjuster fo the carrier bearings, they use thrust washers and shims

I can't imagine they're the same size. Seems like the races on the carrier bearings are much bigger than pinion bearings.
