Chevy Duty has what you are talking about called Poly Ride Liner part no. 
74-935 on page 57 in their catalog.  Price is $44.95 for both springs.

        Sounds like a pretty good idea. Do you know the thickness suggested for 
        an operation? Also, is this between every leaf? Is there a way to kepp 
them in 
        place so they won't work out or get crooked?

        My truck has 8 leaves, and I had considered taking out a leaf or two 
for a 
        better ride. The concerns would be lowering the truck, but these *pads* 
        take up the difference. 

        Any other suggestions or comments on this subject are appreciated. 
        on any precautions I should take. (I just found out my motor is pfffft 
- and 
        it took me $125 to find out).  Geeesh - did they see me coming or what?
