Just to make sure - what are you referring to as shims? The plates that fit over the brake pads? If unsure, do you have a picture?

i had the same thing happen. asked the mechanic at western hills honda he said who knows they're all different. lol they go on the caliper mounting bracket. on the bottom of the top side of the bracket, if that makes sense. between the caliper and the bottom of the mount. don't think they do much tho. they barely even had a wear mark. prongs up. might bend them slightly to hold in place.

Little stainless steel plates that grip the mounting bracket? They act as a lube free surface to aid the pad movement as the pad wears. Clean the mount surface and the back of the plates, give them a little pinch between your fingers so they grip the mount tighter, then put the pads back on. They are common on cars and light duty trucks these days.
