I'd like to follow. I don't think removing any shims will help. The slop is from the ball bearings rolling in the cage and if the balls or race they ride in is worn no amount of pressing down will improve that. There could also be slop in the football on top but again shimming won't take up any excess. That's just my theory and I'd be happy to be proven wrong hence the follow. I truly hope it does improve the workings.
