Isos with h&r springs

Am thinking of not using isos on the front and 1 in the rear? If I do this is there a difference in what one I take off in the back? If anyone has some pics of there setup with lowered stands and will say what the setups I would gladly appreciate it!!

Does it matter which isos you take out if you only take 1 out and what's the difference of you take 1 out then both?

Re: Isos with h&r springs

on a solid rear axle car you may hear noises from not having isolators in the rear, but the front is ok. H&R race is rather low to begin with, I left one out in the front and left both in the rear (all OEM isolators)

The only thing is that the h&r ss still have a little bigger gap it the wheel wells in the back so I was thinking maybe just take the isos out In the back but does it really make a difference in lowering it? Also should I take both out or just one? I want it to sit even?

Re: Isos with h&r springs

you can take one out or both but you may get noise out back from metal/metal sounds as the spring bounces around~ just FYI

Would it look stupid with the oem spring isos in the front with h&r ss and take out the bottom isos in the back to make it sit more even or should I take both out back and 1 in front? Opinions please.

I would probably leave the rears in, and remove the front isos. I think the H&R SS lower the rear a bit much to begin with. Just my 2 cents.

Will the springs settle some after a week or a month? If so, maybe you should wait and see where it settles and adjust from that point.

They should be rubbery looking pads or cups on the top and bottom of your springs. You might be able to see them with a flashlight without jacking it up.

They should look similar to the ones on the right spring.

I can't remember for sure, but you would have to jack it up too high, if you did.

You prolly want to confirm that the iso's are indeed the source of the noise you hear before dropping some dough.

Well the h&r ss springs seem like the back has a more gap in the back than the front. So I was thinking about just removing 1 in back to have it look even? What you think or leave the stock in? Or take both out in front one in back or both in back 1 in front? Haha sorry it's a lot of questions?

Prolly be just a bit lower without both. This would be hard to measure IMO. I'm sure the spring compresses the Iso a little, so seems like it would not even be a 1/4".

I'm not sure how much lower the SS's will take your car. But I personally would not remove any of my spring iso's on my car. They are there for dampening the impact between the spring and the car. That's IMO. Plus, I would not want to hear any metal on metal noises when I hit bumps.

Does it squeak or anything? Did you put tape or anything instead of the isolators?

The difference between using the iso's or not is a 1/2" , to be honest 9 out of 10 people won't even notice the difference , if you want to get as low as possible don't use them and use tape,a bike inner tube, a piece of rubber hose, whatever you are just preventing metal to metal contact. Anytime you start to mod the car you are gonna get squeaks , rattles it comes with doing mods you just have to accept it , you can prevent the springs from making noise all you want throw a set of aftermarket control arms on there and let the squeak fest begin
