IPD isn't stocking all the sizes Volvo used to sell and they're out of stock on a few of sizes they do sell. Of the 25 sizes available from Volvo IPD only has 21 listed on their site and currently 6 of those are out of stock.

The kit I assembled has 34 sizes, 3.25mm-4.9mm. One smaller and 8 larger than the standard kit. I can also special order shims from 2.55mm to 5.2mm thick.
