How many rear isolators w/ OME 132L?

Just got my springs in & I have a small drivers side lean. I got the iso to fix it, but then it I got to thinking that I would like more of a rake. Would I have enough shock to do two isolators on the passenger side & three on the drive side? I'm sure someone has stacked iso s and wanted to see what my limits were.

Yup. I put two 1/4" top plates up front and 3/8" clevis drop and 2" spacers at the rear. That gives 1" of rake which doesn't really look right. I'll be dropping the rear about 3/4" and adjusting the front if necessary to give the back just a little rake. I think the limit for the isolators is 2 or 3 though. Probably because of what they're made of.

JBA is great! My isolators showed up this morning. Getting new rubber installed, PlastiDipping my wheels and hopefully installing the isolators this weekend.

Ted, did you have to get longer studs for your strut tower in order to accommodate the two extra top plates?

No I didn't. They were long enough but there aren't very many threads above the nuts.

So I'm guessing you had to relocate your front breather hose? Where did you end up with it?

I extended all of them. It's at the top of the firewall.

I really need to do this too but there isn't much water fording here in west Michigan so I've been putting it off
