coil spacers with out oem isolator

is there anything wrong with NOT installing to the factory isolator to achieve the lift that i want.

Will there be any adverse symptom of doing this.

There should be no issues, unless you have a sharp end on the coils, or really cheap crappy spacers. Mine are fine after several years of use.

It could be a little "clunk"ier. Why do you not want them??

I just got some 1" coil spacers and they measure 1.25 and the idolaters are .25 so these are supposed to go on without the isolators. But mine are cheapies I got off eBay for $30 after shipping. But I haven't put them in yet. I would think if they are polyurethane and not like hard plastic or metal, you should b fine. If I put mine on before you do I will let you know how they work out.

what is considered cheap because i priced up some RE 1.75" spacers for $35. good brand/cheap price. are they worth it since ill only have them for about a year and a half before i upgrade?

Well I guess I just meant cause I got them off eBay. I haven't put them on cause I think I might need a drop pitman and track bar drop bracket once they go on cause they will put me at 6.5"
