I did not use any shims, and I think I'm on the hairy edge of having enough caster. It probably could have used a 2° shim, but I didn't go there. I ran without a steering stabilizer for a long while after, but I got death wobble a couple times if I hit a pothole/bump on one side or the other right around 35 MPH. I added a stabilizer and haven't gotten it since. I'd say try it without one and use a stabilizer.
