Sorry for the confusion. The shims on the passenger side stay on the passenger side the shims on the driver side stay on the driver side that's all I meant. Yes I have undamaged drivers that I would be willing to let go. Once you take the driver and the housing out you'll understand the process, it's not hard. they'll just be probably two or three maybe four individual thickness of shims and they just need to go back on the same side.that's actually what sets the lash is each set of shims on each side so as long as the left stay on the left and the right stay on the right it's no big deal. One thing I do like to do is take the shims and clean them up so when you put them all back together there's no gunk in between them or on the surfaces of the shim. And if the driver side driver is okay just leave it and just replace the passenger side one that way you don't have to worry about excessive work. But definitely replace the seal and the o-ring on the passenger side.once you've taken it apart and the little snap ring comes out just smack it with a mallet very gently and the driver will separate itself from the housing and then you'll see how it goes back together. Just take a couple of pictures as you've taken the housing out so you see how far the driver fits down in the housing. I would definitely take the exhaust out of the way if you can.if it's too much of a hassle then it's fine it's just a little awkward to get around that downpipe.
