You need this Ford Racing (FRPP) M-6529-A302 Rocker Shim Kit if you are running Pedestal Mount Rocker Arms on your 5.0L Mustang! While Mustang pedestal mount rocker arms are known for their easy bolt down & go installation, their main flaw is that there is no adjustability! Luckily Ford Racing offers this pedestal mount rocker arm shim kit to aid in achieving proper lifter preload.
The shim kit includes 16 0.030" shims & 16 0.060" shims to cover the proper setting of one rocker arm set. You can even stack the shims for more adjustability! it is recommended that if stacking shims only to stack a 0.030" & a 0.060" to achieve 0.090". If more adjustment is needed a different length pushrod should be sourced.
Was hoping my pedestal rocker arms would be a bolt on deal, but after reading instructions and finding my bolts had about 1.5-1.75 turns from zero lash to the torque spec, I knew I needed these shims. They fit great and LMR has the best price around.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!!
