Pinion bearing replacement on F150

My buddy wants to replace a pinion bearing on his truck. The gears are ok just the bearing is going. My question is since the gears are remaining the same, and the housing is remaining the same, would we be able to get away with just reusing the shims that are currently there?

You should be able to because that's what it was set up with. And there should only be 1 shim under the inner pinion bearing. You will need a new crush sleeve.
