Shims on striker bars - Who sells them?

I've got a 1997 4-door XLT. I've been noticing lately that the doors rattle and don't completely close w/o quite a bit of effort. On closer examination, 3 of the 4 striker bars did not have a shim that makes for an easier-to-close and rattle-free door. The dealer tells me that the only way to get the shim is to buy a new striker bar at $27 a pop.

Do you know where I can buy these shims?
