Definitely take the shims out. You can always put them back if it doesn't work. This will definitely lower the action. ( If you have a saddle-mounted transducer under the shims take care not to damage it!)
As a shortcut, put a capo on the guitar at about the 10th fret, slacken all the strings off, remove the pins and pull out the ball ends of the strings to get at the saddle. It should come up easily so you can remove the shims. Put the strings and pins back, take off the capo and tune up.
