King pin shim for Sprite and Midget as required. Each shim is .008" thick.
 
 
Question:
Are these the shims that go under the trunnions? What is their thickness? What is the sequence for placing the shims, above or below the thrush washer? How many shims are needed currently my trunnions binds the swivel shaft even with all the shims provided in the king pin kits.
Answer:

Here's the description for fitting these shims (adding shims loosens, subtracting them tightens):

 

"Fit a .008" and a 012" shim over the thrust washer, fit the trunnion and tighten down the top nut (if you're going to use a Nyloc nut, for this setup use your old one for this procedure). Resistance should just be felt when the axle is turned on the king pin and there should be no obvious vertical play. Add or subtract shims as needed. The axles should have enough play where the self-centering  effect at the steering wheel is maintained."

 

The king pin kits should have these shims.
