Don't use shims if you plan to drive it. With thAt much lift actually cut and turn the C's to get the correct caster. Also I'd throw a track bar on it. Ya I under stand it's lead spring lift but that's alot of leverage on them bushings. It will move them.
Equal is good stuff for the bigger tires. For steering id go with a redneck ram setup.
