Shims for the rear 8.2" differential (DIY Eaton Locker Install)

Hoping someone on here has done work on our 8.2" rear differential before. I am going to be jumping in a DIY install for the new Eaton Locker on my SR5. The manufacturer doesn't include preload shims for the differential like ARB does. I need to procure them but I'm having a hard time finding shims for our 8.2" diff, there are only shim packs for 8". Any pointers there?
Also for those who have done this install, did you also replace the axle seals at the same time? I'm trying to avoid that but it looks like pulling the half shafts out usually damages the seal.

For future search purposes, I called up East Coast Gear Supply and they recommended a diff shim pack for a Dana 44 that I scooped up. They use the same size preload shims as our 8.2" Toyota rears apparently.

If you are careful, no need to replace your axle seals if yours are not leaking. I have removed my axles several times and still on the original seals at 290k miles.

That is great news, trust me banging out those seals and bearings are the last thing I want to do. Impressed that yours have lasted that long!
