P51 Rear shock Shims... Alternatives

I just wanted to know if anyone has a good alternative to the shims P51 makes for the rear shock mounts. I ghetto rigged my mounts with card board. Hmmm... wood....

Thoughts anyone?

Oh the shims, for poeple that dont know, quite down some of the clunks/squeaks when you installed a performance suspension (ex roush stage 2). I had a clunking noise around the top of my rear right shock mount and my 2 minute homemade shim somewhat worked and quieted the noise some. I figure something more sturdy should do the trick if .... does not make them anymore... but I would slike some suggestions

A sheet of polyurethane (of the correct thickness) and a hole saw (of the correct diameter) would be a very inexpensive solution.

Heck, 25 bones? I like geezers idea a little more. Even if I have to buy the bit, at least I'll own a bit too! Or, if this dude sold the proper bits a long with the shims then I'd go for it.....lol

Are the shims really going to make that much of a difference though like the description says?
