basically...

Wheel off, drum off (would say its drums on yours?) theres 4 bolts that hold the drum on behind the shoes and S**t an unbolt them, thius takes your drum off the axle. You then put the shims between your drums and axle right there... or you can use washers cough real rough way tho.... then put drum back on 4 bolts, shoes bk in + other bits and bobs then wheel on.

ill try find i guide.. but thats the basics of it.

cheers dude, im getting it now, i couldnt work out where they went but makes sense right behind the drum. thinkin i may have a go at this this summer. wheels are spaced right out to the arches to the point its already touching over bumps and its not lowered yet, and when it does get slammed im either gonna have to give it some negative camber or bring the wheels back in.
