ISTR a recall on my 71 TR-6 soon after I bought it (new) which was for
headlight height.  I think they were too high but I don't recall.   Could
this have affected other Triumphs, Could the height be adjusted by adding
shims to the rear?

I have been upgrading my IRS axle to the Goodparts CV joint axles.  


But then why so many shims?   I would have expected one of the two brackets
to have zero or 1 shim, and the other bracket would be shimmed to get the
toe adjusted properly???
