    I'm finally going to lower my car this spring with some Steeda SuperLite springs. Should I use the isolators or not?

    That's more of a personal choice. If you're not satisfied with how low it is once the springs are in, remove the isolators. If you're content, keep em in.

    Bit of work to do it twice, but I suppose it is what it is.

    What about squeaking?

    Wrap the ends in electrical tape or thing heater hose. You don't have to do it twice. If you gonna want to get the most out of the lowering springs, don't run the isos.

    I'll speak up and say I have no iso's front or rear and have no problems out of it. Doesn't bother me in any way.
