I think Dye would tell you to never touch them EVAR!!!!!!!!

People around here have been lubing their shim stacks and at the very least not getting bad results. try it!

I mean, I don't recommend it as when the lube drys out it tends to cause the shims to rust, if they get moist.

Lube them well! Made a big difference in my DM14.

A quality lube will help prevent rust on the shims. Rust on shims and springs are caused often by moisture in your air tank making its way into the regulators. A coating of lube will help protect them.

do you guys just lube the outside of the shims with the shims on the piston or do you lube them off the piston. also do you lube the entire thing or just the edges where the air passes by the shim

I agree with all that has been said but...

1) Treat each shim stack and reg part individually. It takes more time, but you'll get a better result.

2) DON'T OVER LUBE. Treating each item with a thin coat is more than enough. Over do it on the lube and remember where that air/lube mixture goes next... right into the solenoid.

TL\DR Use quality lube, take your time with each part, apply a thin even coat, get good results.

Would you be so kind and upload a picture of one shim after you lubed it? To show us how much lube you use?

You guys are making this way to difficult. You really can't screw it up. Just lube each shim like you would lube any other part.

1:Blot one finger in your desired lube.
2:Rub the lube between your fingers until they're damp.
3:Then rub a shim between them until the shim is coated and sticks to your finger held upside down.

**The shim should not look clumpy with excess lube**
