Jasmine,

Very interesting idea! Actually, maybe two step washers front-to-front. However, you'd have to make sure the step is just the right height to properly preload the bearings. Too much step, and the there's too much side pressure on the bearings. Too little step, and you still have slop in the races. You could grind down the degree of step as necessary. You'd also need a pretty doggone small step washer, with a 5mm OD and 3mm ID, or something like that.
