Turns out they are alignment shims. I asked my coworker who had one in high school. No offence to the old timers out there. 😂 anyways, as I'm putting it back together, I cant seem the get the perch to sit level to the ground without significant force. Is this where the roller perches come in handy? I've been fighting this perch for a couple hours now and can get it to where the spring will go into its spot. Any tips for this?

What do you mean the drop? And yes I did get the new perches. Was gonna pack up and tackle it in the morning. But I'd like to know more about this UCA drop.

It Makes A World Of Difference In Handling Ability. But don't take my word for it ask around. Anyone that has done will agree
So to recap you got new perches ,are they roller or poly or stock rubber?
Here is a pretty solid recipe ,
UCA drop
roller/poly perchs
620 coils with a poly top hat, 1/2 loop removed if you like
export brace
Monte Carlo bar
1" sway bar w/poly bushings
adjustable strut rods with Heim joints/rod ends

Shocks ,well every one has a favorite I use KYB GAJ many like Bilstein And thwn you have the Koni fans
Alignment specs +4 or more caster. -.5 to -1.5 camber and 1/8" toe in
