If you are just sticking with the small lift from the springs you do not need any angle compensation.

You already put the springs on, right? Are you getting any vibrations?

Very curious if the degree shims are needed as well. My MD dakars should be here friday. Nisstec recommended 1 degree for every inch lifted but from what I've read on here our trucks don't have any problems on a 2-3" lift.

I don't have any shims on my Dakar HD's and have zero vibrations. Even when new when they gave like 3.5" of lift in the rear, no vibrations.

done

So i did the install on thanksgiving day and i wasnt able to take any pictures cause my old lady was rushing me. but it went pretty smooth i did have to use my neighbors air tool to remove the front eye bolt but besides that braker bar was good enough for the removal.

Thought I'd add another review. Last week I installed the MD's into the lowest setting of PRG adjustable shackles (1"). Have settled to an inch higher than when I was on the highest shackle mount with stock leafs. Thus giving me 2" of lift from the springs.

The ride was a little rough at first. Today I had a ARE CX shell put on and it really smoothed it out. Hasn't lowered it any though. Overall I'm really happy with it. No vibrations without shims. Works great with the coilovers up front. Only wish it would settle another half inch or so... right now sitting at a 2" rake. can't decide if its too much or not.
