Default Single leaf car/Multi leaf housing

I'm in a jam and might be having to move very soon. I have a 12 bolt that came out of a multi leaf car and I want to put it in my single leaf car to avoid having to pack/haul etc.. So, as you know, the depth of the spring perchs are about 1.5"-2" different (eyeballed, I have not measured yet)
Is there a "block" / "Spacer" that would suffice to do what I want until I get settled in to the new place?

Detroit Speed makes a mono leaf to multi leaf conversion kit.

I think the DSE part is for the other way, mono to multi-leaf spring. I would just use a lowering block to take up the space like this one:

You're right. I read that wrong. But now he has options.

Yep, The DSE kit is opposite what I need. I picked up a couple 1" blocks and will place them under the spring between the spring and lower shock mount plate. This should get me by until I get settled without lowering the car any.
