YAY Suspension. Spring Isolaters?

So I dropped my winter savings on suspension and seats for my Mach 1 and now im down to the last piece of the puzzle. Spring Isolaters. This wont be my first suspension swap but last time I used Poly and will never again suffer through that squeaky hell ever again. Ford quoted me over 260 for a full set of isolaters and mine are pretty much shot. Im not too worried about using the old ones but would prefer to use the new ones. Does anyone know of a set of rubber Isos? I will just use some rubber heater hose if need be for the front lower isos ( good results according to some people on other forums, but the rest of the isos. Also, does anyone know what the inner and outer diameter of our springs are?

-cheers.

Are there any disadvantages to not running ISOs? I don't mean to thread jack!

not at all...they are supposed to keep the springs from making creaking noises, but i've never had any issue with it...besides that you'll lower your car about a 1/4" by pulling them

Yeah, I think I'm just gonna reuse the old ones and replace the lower one with heater hose. Biggest thing I think they do is protect the powder coat on the springs. But i just wanna do it by the book.

I do have a set of stock springs out of my old 96 gt in my garage I think. But depending on your location it might be too expensive to ship them haha.
