Default Trunion Shims

I'm complete with the removal and cleaning of all the components for a full knuckle/wheel bearing replacement on my newly acquired 78 FJ40 and I'm waiting on my kit from Cruiser Outfitters. My plan was to simply reinstall the shims that were on the rig but I am now thinking I should check it. Looks like a straight forward process as long as you have the SST, measuring calipers and a fish scale. Can I rent a SST from someone or somewhere? Any suggestions on how to do it besides following the FSM? I'm done knuckles on two 80's but this is a new one for me.

Thanks. Doug
