Rear spring spacer block?

Do any of the vendors on the ORG. sell them? I need to do the left side spring to see if it gets rid of the lean and the Ford part is stupid for a block of steel. I figured I'd ask here before having one made.

Left side lean. There was a TSB about it and Ford has spacers to correct it but they are getting $270 for a spring block that can be made at a spring shop for less than $50.

If you have a lean you need to fix the weak spring!

Yes I had a spring shop do it. I am almost ready to just add a leaf but if a half inch shim fixes it I'll be happy. Not the TSB was in 05.....I know it ends in 05 but the trucks had the same rear suspension.
