Mike,
Thanks for the spring ID. That confims the PO's story that he changed the spring twice. The first time it was probably the stock .7 to 1.0 and then to the Andial 1.1 bar spring.

The shims I have are very thin. I measured them at .50mm (.020"). They were both at the top of the spring. Clearly, someone has been in there and placed both shims where I found them.

I can't imagine that they would pre-load the spring very much. I like your explanation that they go on either end of the spring to protect the aluminum spring housing.

I have enclosed a picture of the shims below.

Thanks,
Mark
