+1 on the shim fitting (except it took me 3 or 4 tries). I didn't see the 
shim kit included in the sale items for the brace, however. It will not work 
correctly without being shimmed. Well worth the effort though. To whomever 
purchases it, email Murph and I'm sure he'd be glad to send along another 
set of shims.
