Man bummer that you ordered a bunch of shims without checking. You mostly remove shims from the basevalve for my mod. MX tech has a great selection of shims too. The midvalve float is key to making it work correctly. The float is the distance the shims can open riding on the spring before they start to deflect. To measure the float remove the spring and measure the gap that is between the shims sitting on the rebound tap and the piston. Or remove all the shims measure the gap and then measure your shims. The difference is your float. My float is 1.13 on my bike. Yours is probably around 1.8 stock. The numbers you are listing are not right. Washers WILL NOT WORK to take up space to lower the float. You need to use real deal shims so they can flex.
