Front leafspring plastic inserts

Anyone know what i can use to replace or where i could find replacement pieces for the plastic inserts on the front leaf springs? They are inside the front and the rear of the spring and separate the two leafs. the front two have worn through and fallen out on my springs and now i have sqeaky suspension. I called Ford parts and they said i would have to buy all new leaf springs, they werent solds separately...

If you call up the ford dealer again ask them for a shim kit that was available for that vehicle in a bulletin they are still available I need the same thing for my truck and I had to order them. I think they run somewhere around 40 but thats for a whole set so its not too bad. From the sounds of it you got a parts guy they just doesnt wanna do the leg work to look up a part.
