How are you aware that you need a thicker shim if you haven't taken the trans apart and measured the bearing race clearance? I put a Torsen in my Svt and the stock shim put my in the correct bearing preload range. There are other people on here that have done the same. As far as finding a shim you will most likely have to go to a trans shop and look through what they have laying around. I was going to cut shims for a rear diff to fit if I had to use a different thickness.
