    the front brake pad set comes with 3 shims for the front brake
    1 large shim for outer pad and 2 smaller shims for inner pad.

    Dilema... both inner shims were installed on the previous
    installed pads with the large shim on top of the smaller shim.

    is that correct ?
    if not, then how does one decide which of two inner shims to use

    thanks for any useful advice,

    The current arrangement is correct: The smaller shim is UNDER the bigger
