Anyone making a metal plate for the floppy axle on USA SD40-2 and SD70MAC

I know many have fabricated plates to stabilize the floppy axles on the 6 axles locomotives from USA, such as the SD40-2 and SD70MAC. I’m looking for available options that I could purchase or print so that I don’t recreate the wheel. I understand by fixing the floppy axles, the locomotive will require a larger radius curve.

Thank you,

I’ve printed two sets for my sd40-2. Works great. They also fit the sd70. USA Trains Truck Plate by jbhuse - Thingiverse

Also for the sd70 Manimal has files to print a new solid top and bottom. Printables
