Sloppy new levers

Hello All

Bought a pair of the $35 Fleabay clutch & brake levers for my 2012.
Bought the same for my departed 2009.

Think they are the same item.
For $35.00, they certainly are an aesthetic improvement over the beef short rib originals.

Anyway, the 2009 is gone, as I recall the levers were a bit sloppy in the verticle fitment, but not too bad.

These, on my '12 are pretty crappy in the verticle fitment.
The OEM clutch lever wasn't fanatstic in this regard either.

Anybody come accross this and done something about it.

I'm thinking about some thin fiber washers or some such...

While neither lever has given me any problem, they are a bit loose in the vertical. I chalk that up to overall fit/finish/build quality. Functionally they are just fine. I am interested in a fix, if anyone has one.
