    It's it wise to use the pinion shims that BellTech suggests when I go to lower my 04' ext. cab 1500. DJM doesn't suggest to use them.

    I've got Belltech 2in rear Shackles,and I did not use Shims.I would guess that most guys that do just a 2in Rear Drop don't use shims.Any lower I would use shims.BTW I've had the drop for 8yrs No problems.
