Does anyone sell rack shims yet?

If not, does anyone have NA subframe that they could measure for me. I need the dimensions of rack mounting surface and bolt hole location (relative to the shim dimensions and bolt center to center).

Once my car gets back from the body shop I'll measure (about two weeks)... I'll be going to HomeDepot to get the stock.

Willie, put my boots on, shoveled my way behind the garage, sweep the snow off the 1990 front subframe & measured the power steering threaded mounting hole locations.

If you were to make a pad 1 inch wide by 4 1/8 inch long with one hole 1/2 inch from one end & the hole centers 3 1/8 inch you would be in fat city. Make the holes 7/16 inch diameter to cover any error I made in measuring the hole centers. [scratchchin]
