Isolator issues

I tried lowering my bird using an eibach pro kit... now the rear was supposed to be lowered 1.5" I got poly isolators for the rear from supercoupeperformance.com and with them it actually raised .5" off stock... can anyone tell me the thickness of the stock isolators or tell where to get the right ones?

The new springs need time to settle.
Remeber you are replacing close to 10 year old springs as well as the isolators.

Also the new springs are stiffer than the stock ones you replaced.

not necassary...I didn't change my endlinks.
If I were you, I'd pull the new Isolators, and put your stock ones back in.

Hell, I don't even run em anymore....not noisy what so ever.

when i installed the -1.5 pro kit with the poly islolators i had the same issue. the car was jacked up looking in the rear. i put about 5k on the car over the last year and there just starting to even out. i think my stock springs were saggin 1.5 inches so i didnt see a big differance in height. so i would leave the poly isolators and you will be fine.
