valve shim trouble

I have a 2004. I disassembled the top end to install a new piston and rings. When I took the head off, I turned it upside down to look at the valves and three of the buckets and shims fell out and I don't know their original location. Two intakes and one exhaust fell out. I have two 181 shims and a 188, a 190, and a 192. I think that one of the 181 shims was an exhaust. What should I do?

you will have to take a wild guess, assemble. check your clearance , adjust accordingly,

Is it true that my cams will be damages because I mixed up the shim buckets?

just dont ride it. assemble the cams with the shims and check your valves. then mess around with the shims untill you get the clearences right.

no, but it's just good practice not to mix the buckets around.
