/ Heel lift
When you tie the lace, do it as normal until the last 2 hooks. Miss out the second to top hook and go straight to the top, then cross over and go back down to go round the ones that you missed out. Then tie underneath those two. Does that make sense? I just pushes your heel a bit more into the back of the boot. If the explanation isn't very clear then I could try and take some pics for you. Works really well.
duck tape your heal up, works a treat
Look at your feet and ascertain any difference between the two if you can (split foot into three; front middle and back, and look at width, height and volume paying special attention to the heels). If you can find any differences it will let you know where to focus your attention.
If the heel is smaller use a heel-lift under your insole. If the volume is less you could try a volume reducer, these can be used whole or cut in half if needs be, and place under the original insole or superfeet if extra volume reduction is required. If the volume is lower around where the arch is located try a tongue depressor.
Failing this a liner sock is a less than ideal way of solving the problem, but may aid in the reduction of friction, both on your heel and the lining of the boot. Hope this helps! links to the three below!
Sandpaper or chisel (your choice) the big heel until it matches the other one ;-)
Less painful, would be to shrink the biggy in the wash OR a sh1t load of Botox in the small heel every 3 months.
I posted a very similar solution a while back. Here's the pics
It sorted out the heel lift in my Vegas and Mantas. Hope it helps.

it would be quicker shaving half an inch off your foot with an electric planer I reckon,
