yea, I would not worry about it to much, if you have the stock block that will give you enought angle i would think.

Im running stock block, hd springs/with add aleaf, zero rate and shackle flip about 10 inchs of lift and im fine with the stock block.

You dont need any shim to go under your springs. Single cardon shafts are designed to work with the ujoints to be at equal but opposite angles to cancel vibrations. You dont need a shim, unless it is to increase the angle on the joint due to the fact that a spring could rotate the pinion up.
