Yes the BJ8 shims are different but they are not interchangable.

Check the wheel bearing races, You probably do not have them set all the way down.

Usually there is about .060 in shims. The shims will be installed between the spacer and the outer wheel bearing. 

The best way to adjust them is to do your adjustments with no grease. Then after you have the shims required remove the hub and them put your wheel bearing grease in and re assemble.

I am retrofitting a 3000 disc brake setup to a BN2.  I invested in new correct front splines hubs for this purpose and all the appropriate hardware involved.  Now, the shim I bought do not look like they will fit over the diameter of the stub axle at the location (against the distance piece, behind the outer bearing).  Is there an inner diameter difference between BJ8 shims and earlier front suspensions?  Did I buy the wrong shims?  This job just gets to be more fun all the time.

P.S. Thanks for the clarification on shim location.  Apparantly I could have put a half inch of shims behind the tabbed washer and would never have been adjusted correctly.  I understand why they must go where they go now.  Just takes a while to get through this thick skull of mine.
