Looking for anti-squeek strips and tips for Leaf Springs

On one of the leaf springs on my '83 CJ7 Limited I need to replace all the black strips of plastic (or rubber or nylon, whatever they are made of) that goes between each layer of the leaf springs and the pads that snap into the oval shaped holes at the end of each spring. All my other three springs have complete sets but the drivers side rear spring is missing all those place strips and end pads.

Does anyone either know of a source selling replacement kits or would anyone happen to have a set out of an old broken or damaged spring they are no longer using?

I know when I rebuilt the springs on my K5 they were a PITA to source. They are available online, but IIRC, they were like $5-7ea. I found them (snap in type) at a local shop: Valley Spring in Phoenix for cheap. They may ship?

There are also several DIY articles/threads on other forums I came across by doing a google search.

You might try these people. I had a printed catalog from them a while back and they had what you're looking for.

The Eaton Spring Co. sells the Teflon leaf spring liner material that I used here...
