What is the best way to mill or ground the Z axis

I am a little confused on the Z axis slide plate grinding. Is it best to take it to a machine shop and have it milled?

Z Axis Slide Plate

First piece ordered arrived.
Now on to figure out the slider plate.

I think it is 1" x 3" x 1/4" x 28" long and then cut back to 26 (+/-) inches after fitting spring. Is that correct?

My first question. Is 1/4' x 4" x 18" gauge plate the best size for the z axis? I see longer one mentioned on here, and some of the drawings show different size lengths for different options.
