Iso's or no Iso's

Well, I'm 99% sure I'll be lowering the stang this weekend

Need some input from y'all...got H&R Super Sports, Tokico HP's, and MM 4 bolt CC plates. I have 17x9 and 17x10.5 bullitts.

Should I ditch the isos or leave them in? I was leaning towards taking them out in the front and leaving them in the rear, and tape the ends of the fronts to prevent squeaking. Give the car a slight rake but still sit low.

I want a serious drop...the car only gets driven when I wish so dd isn't a problem.

Just want some input...anyone with experience lowering with/without isos feel free to chime in...and be honest, I don't want to have to tear into the setup again, lol.

Re: Iso's or no Iso's

I'd leave them in personally. Your car will be plenty low enough with those springs. You might not drive it a lot but that doesn't mean you want to scrap on everything when you do.

I have already, literally, ripped my passenger side exhaust off the xpipe just driving it down the interstate.

Re: Iso's or no Iso's

with supersports you're gonna want to leave them in...most definitely.

Only way I would say take them out is if you don't plan on actually driving the car on normal roads or anywhere that is not completely, 100%, perfectly flat with no changes whatsoever.

Re: Iso's or no Iso's

Yah the roads around here definitely aren't 100%...I just don't want to install the SS's and leave the iso's then not get enough drop and wish I would've taken out the front ones. I've seen quite a few pics without iso's in the front and the drop was perfect (to me). Some of stangs with the iso's still looked too high especially with 17's.

Re: Iso's or no Iso's

I think you will be more than happy with the drop. It is up to you though.

I agree that you should leave them. Ride is just too rough without them.

Re: Iso's or no Iso's

with the supersports, leave them in. You might want to remove ONE from the front down the line if you want to drop the front a tiny bit. This is of course the oem isolators im talking about. The supersports are lower than my drop.... good luck to you

Re: Iso's or no Iso's

Leaving them in would be a good idea for the ride quality.
