Just looked at ef ghia 6, all ok except i noticed under r/hand side front spring bracket ( where the spring holds on to the underbody ) there are shims (brass looking) about 4 cm of shim between bracket and where it bolts on to underbody of car??? is this normal?

I take it you are talking about the upper control arm? If so yes its normal for shims to be there as they space out the camber/castor kit to the required setting for wheel alignment.
