No fronts that I can find.
Seems the rear would be more likely to need them though. The engine weight is pretty constant while the rear has many possibilities for upping the weight.
People, junk in the trunk and so on.

SAS used to carry front spacers as well. You might call them up & ask if they have any still laying around somewhere.

I made my own spacers from high density plastic -- the same material used for plastic cutting boards in the kitchen. In fact, mine came from old cutting boards.

If you have a drill and a jigsaw, these are pretty simple to make yourself. Mine have been on the car, front and rear, for about a year now with no problems.
