Broung14, are you referring to the long wedge shaped piece shown between the caliper and the caliper support spring or the anti-rattle clips on the pads themselves shown at the bottom of the diagram?

My '77 F100 does not have the long wedge shaped shim piece I was referring to that is shown above but it does have the anti rattle clips Charlie is talking about.

It might be best to identify your new axle and figure out what came installed on it.

Here's what my set up has and likely yours too:
