On my dana 60 front, I was taking it apart, and on the spindle bolts, right before the brake bracket comes off, is a shim that is tapered...
one side is thicker than the other. it has many holes in it but it only fits 2 ways.

my question is this....I assume it helps/controls/sets caster, but the spot that each it fits is different on each side.

the drivers side puts the thin side at about 6 o clock..
the passenger side put the thin side at anout 12 or 1

which is correct??

I looked in all my books, and couldn't find anything on this.....

prolly an easy answer, but plz help....

Im not sure, but i think it depends on how much correction is needed, if a little more was needed on one side or the other they might have tilted it slightly to change the effects.

80 percent of the time the thicker is at the top to compensate for axle "fatigue" those shim are to correct caster and camber -- somewhat...
I would put it in that way and take it down to the alignment shop for a checkup.................................
