Springs

Is it safe to keep the isos off when putting on new lowering springs on?

I hear people wrap the ends of the springs with electrical tape to keep the creaking to a minimum.

I actually used heater hose. 3/4 inner diameter. Works great. No way I was getting my stock ones off and running them with nothing feels like a bad idea to me. But lots of people run them without.

I don't like the idea of metal on metal.
I wrapped mine 4 or 5 times with electrical tape and ended up getting polyurethane isos later.

I HATE poly bushings. Squeaky little bastards. If it doesn't have a zerks fitting I go rubber. Just can't stand that constant squeaking.

I've even seen people use rubber garden Hose. It works pretty well too.

I had no idea it was squeaky. Mine are totally silent.

I'm guessing yours are fairly new? My rear isos started squeaking like crazy about 5 months after install. The grease breaks down.

That's strange, mine have been on for a few years and no squeaks whatsoever. But I don't put many miles on my car.
