Hey guys I've been reading alot on some of the Mustang sites I visit about people removing their isolators when they lower their car. My question is would removing the isolators effect ride quality? I bought a 95GT that already came lowered but the ride quality is :eek:utofcloset:. Just trying to figure out possible solutions before I go purchase anything.

Thanks Guys

I have no experience but from what I've heard it usually makes no difference in anything. Some people say the ride is louder/squeekier but others say nothing changes.

i was toying with this idea, but i heard if you go long tubes dont take em out. I also heard if you do take them out wrap some tape around the tops of them to get rid of the squeeks.

I have longtubes, and no Isos. I wrapped the springs with tape, so no noises. THere isnt any ride difference with or without.

here are the 2 pictures I have on my computer. Hopefully all the snow and salt on the roads will go away soon so I can give it a nice cleaning and get some nicer pics.

without isolators the spring will rub against the control arm and it will over time will destroy the spring

it would actually go through the control arm before it rubbed through the spring, but it would take a gagillion years for either to happen.
