    Yes they do, they are called spacers & blocks.
    But OP said he wanted good & cheap. Those are the two that don't go together.

    Cheap but not spacers and blocks? I would look into a set of Bilstein 5100's adjustable front shock and AAL from ToyTec.

    Come on they are a lift and are in the same group as the hockey puck lifts (the group of lifts to avoid).
