Push the piece up into the steering neck shock pocket, and the other end just set it on top of the trailing arm {telelever arm} above where the lower shock would mount. Use it basically as a spacer....then put a tie down up and over the steering neck and down to the trailing arm. Tighten the tie down {ratchet tie would be best} this will hold the block of wood tight, and keep the space correct.

With this system you could even take it off of the center stand and move it around on the wheels if you had too.
Not a bad idea. Even a length of broom handle would work.

I've done this more than once:
