Replacement Front Coil Isolators

I'm getting ready to replace the worn out factory struts/shocks on my 07 XK and looking to get new isolators for the front strut assembly. Does anyone make poly replacement isolators that don't raise the vehicle? If so, where do I get them? If not, what brand do you guys recommend and where do I get them?

I havent seen a poly isolator, however, I replaced mine with the crown automotive ones and they look like a great quality product.

Have you ordered from them since they sorted out their "bad batch" situation? I've heard they got the problem solved, but you can never be too sure.

I've seen "lift kits" that use thicker spring isolators (basically spacers) to the lift the front and rear of the vehicle. I already plan on using the RR front leveling plate to take the nose dive out of the front end, but I don't want any other lift besides that.

I just replaced mine when I put on the FSD's, and also put on new OEM coils. I bought the OEM coils and OEM isiolators from an online Mopar discounter for both front lowers and the 4 rears. These are the lowest prices of any I found, including aftermarket ones from Rockauto. Front uppers come with new strut mounts, and I used Monroes.

This may sound dumb, but are there different material compositions from OEM to aftermarket? Meaning, are the OEM ones a softer rubber to achieve a soft ride and aftermarkets ones harder rubber for more durability?

I haven't, I bought mine mid last year.
