AC Compressor Shims

I got a new a/c compressor a few weeks ago. its starting to make a noise from the belt area. i believe its the clutch. the gap is .016 and the minimum is .014. I want to try and bring it to .025 and see if this helps. the noise is like a tapping/rubbing noise. its only sometimes so im thinking when it warms up and expands the clutch is making contact and rubbing. i can not for the life of me find any shims online. ive tried many the stores. closest thing i could find is this kit at JCWhitney. Motorcraft kit but it says its not for a 1999. its for 2000 and up. Can anyone tell me if this will still work? im not sure if the models for compressors changed in 2000 or what the deal is.
