Don't waste your money on a kit. It only has a few shims that you will ever use and the rest will be used for target practise!
Do the valve clearance check and figure out which shims you need and order them either from a dealer or one of the suppliers. You will thank me later.

Hope this helps.....

I got mine from here. $6 apiece and I had them within two days. Can't guarantee the same speed with your delivery, but I was impressed with both the price and speedy shipping. I wound up only needing two new ones as I was able to just swap the other two around:
