I can't say at all without hearing it of coarse. I don't know how great you are at auto repair so I don't know if you bolted it up right, because it is possible to bolt it up wrong. My only suggestion is to loosen the bolts, wiggle the starter, tighten it back up. Someone else here may be able to shed some light on the use of shims. I don't know the details on that particular truck so I'm not going to say.
