I use adjustable parallels but that may or may not be an option for you. Yes any type of shim stock would help. The problem is that the drill will hit whatever is under the part when it breaks through. Another option might be to clamp the part the way I mentioned above with the other end extending out of the vise along the X Axis. You could then level the part out by running your indicator along a straight section. I would suggest indicating along the top both ball pieces but I don’t know if they are the same diameter? In any case you just need to get everything level and you should be good to go.
That looks like it may be stainless or possibly chrome plated?
