spring isolators neccesary?

i know they take away like .5" to my drop, and they stiffen things up. also they don't wear over time. i have a set rite now and wondered if i should go ahead and toss them in?

i'm guessing my stock pair will be wearing out soon?

I'm not running any front isolators if I remember right..Brandon would know...I know I still have rear isolators but that was for the drop, need to get ahold of a set and put them back in to even it out. Ask brandon, he'll know.

i like the front being lower personally which is why i got 1.7"/1.6" springs. 2000 cobra R is like that but i feel the back is too high on it

It has side exhaust to deal with though.

good point. but it still seems higher than it should be in the rear, even w/ the pipes from side exhaust.

for example: roush side exhaust.

sits just as far back as cobra R, and the outlet pipe is bigger. plus the bodykit. and no clearance issue there.

I dunno, that was just my way of justifying it. Maybe it has something to do with it being a primarily race oriented car. :dunno:

perhaps. i guess it might improve airflow. a lot bigger opening in the back for air to slide under after its split up front?

I don't think air under the car at all is good. What is under there would get caught by the rear bumper, and that would be bad. I doubt the rake of the car has any play in that, but I really dunno. These are all just ideas.

they take away like .3 to .4. You dont need the top front but you need all of the others and you DEFINATLY need the rears unless you just like annoying sounds.

No, my front isn't low enough, so I'm thinking...do something to raise the rear slightly and be done with itl
