Do I need isolators?

I'm looking to put Eibach Sportline springs on my 89 gt. I've herd mixed stories on if I need isolators or not? How much extra drop is it from removing them ?

I'm getting ready to do springs on my fox too and isolators are highly recommended.

About a 1/4" but without them things sometimes get a little noisy.

Look in the 1996-2004 GT section. There was just a big thread about this a few days ago.

I've always used new rubber isolators or polys. Don't like the metal just sitting on the metal.

Awesome stance! Just did those springs with new isolators. If you want a squeaky suspensions I wouldn't install them. The tape would just wear out and be noisy I would highly recommend isolators.
