Differential Bearing Shims

    We're rebuilding the rear end on my SI V6 conversion project and am in need of differential bearing shims to set the correct preload.

    Sunbeam Specialties is down to a bare bones inventory (essentially out of stock) and isn't planning on stocking them going forward. Are there any other sources or does everybody just make their own?

    Curious where SS is getting them from. Are they just not going to carry them or has their source dried up?

    I got the impression that it was a sourcing issue.

    Bill, compare them with more common rear axle shims. MGB can use 12 bolt Chevy.
