Uh, Do you want to help the guy, or just pimp intuitions? If you add a ton of material to the front of the bootboot and push your leg into the back of the boot a heel lift is not the answer. That would just angle his shin into the top of the boot more and make shin bang worse! Plus, you don't want to be altering fore/aft balance to fix a fit issue in the cuff!

Repeat after me, Playing with liners is a short term fix for a shell that does not fit.

I have super-skinny calves. Intuition Power Wraps have worked well for me--no shin bang (I didn't have it before either). I did find they put me too upright, which putting the rear spoiler back in the boot and a heel lift cured. One thing that is nice about my boots--Rossi Radical Pro's--is that the cuff is much higher in the back than the front, which makes it easy to put the Booster Strap around the liner. In fact I can adjust the stiffness by how tight I cinch the strap. (Most people find the Intuitions stiffen the boot, but the stock liner in my boots had a very stiff tongue so the Intuitions made the boot softer, which I fixed by putting back in both screws in the spine.)
