raising tread on service door

i have a crack near my service door and i installed a new prehung steel door there .i needed to raise the door some so the door would open and close properly. can i use some of that caned foam to put under the threshold to firm it up so it wont sag? i dont like putting shims in there.not permanent enough. i have about a 5/8 inch gap.

Why can't you take it out and put a level bed of concrete under it? The foam won't hold weight very well and will let water in if you have a problem with that.
