Upper & Lower spring isolators

where's the best place to get these? Are there differences in quality if I go aftermarket vs. oem? Reading around it looks like the lowers are more important than the upper (by more important I mean they show more wear)..... I don't want to buy all 4 yet, but I would like to replace a couple when I have it apart.

thanks for any info you have

Check Iron Rock Offroad. I've lost a front spring when my sway bar was disco'd and I only had the lower retainers. I'd recommend both the upper and lower if you are doing any kind of wheeling.

Edit: Nevermind, I thought you meant spring retainers, not isolators.

I got the full set from Rock Auto as well. The Raybestos brand. They run around $100 shipped. Mine were pretty easy to replace too because I didn't have to fight any rust. I replaced mine when I put the lift on to give the new springs as solid a resting place as possible.
