The blue shims are the ones I was referring to :)
Shims like that are regularly used by body and alignment shops to correct camber on the rear of cars with non-adjustable rear suspension.

Each shim is made of two parts and you spin and position them differently depending on how much or little correction is needed. It's not as simple as the OTG's because you will have to figure out how much toe to correct for, and that's nearly impossible without an alignment rack.

Yup,you need an alignment rack to determine how much adjustment is required. The OTG and Garson ones have a fixed camber/toe change,the 2-piece plastic ones are adjustable.

If you want adjustable shims I'd stick with the Specialty Products ones,never heard of Springtech.
