Heel lifts

I know heal lifts are more of a ski boot fix, but I am wondering if they are a practical fix for a snowboard boot or not. Do they generate to much un natural forward lean? Is that a bad thing...?

I am inbetween a Burton Ruler 10.5 and an 11, I have heal lift in every boot I try it seems, so I ordered 1/8" Foam, insole blanks, and heal lifts. I tried a couple different combinations without using foam, and the heel lift with the insole blank almost emanates my heal lift in the 10.5, however the top arch (name for it is unknown, over the top of my foot where the muscle that flexes when you lean forward is) is outside of the liner. By that I mean the liner does not become isolated around my boot, it forces the tongue out. Is that bad?

The 11 with just the insole blank makes it more snug and comfortable, however after wearing them awhile I begin to feel a pressure point that will probably go away once the boot is worn in, maybe they are to tight. I think I can eliminate the heal lift in them with the foam.

With the heal lift in the 10.5, my toes also move away from the edge of the insole giving me more room in the toes, which I was lacking a little.

I have looked at 32s and K2s and have the same problem, my foot is slightly wide.

I have some shred soles coming in that may help with the pressure point?

I want to know if using heal lifts is just bad news.
