Need upper rear coil spring isolators

I spoke with a parts guy at a dealership and he said that Mopar no longer supplies the "spring bushings" for '98 GC's. He used the VIN number when he checked for the parts. I learned that the two rear isolators/bushings are different from side to side. The left being pn 52088379 and the right side being pn 52088398.

I found one for the right side but it's really just the left that's needed for now.

What aftermarket isolators are people using? Without fitment issues?

The 52088398 will work just fine for both sides. I sell them all the time and never see any issues.

No one in the aftermarket ever duplicated the shape of the genuine Mopar rear isolators.

I can't find anywhere online that sells rear coil spring insulators. I have a 95 zj. Where do you sell them? I'm located in Canada

I tried to chop some Moog fronts with a grinder to fit the rear.. Never again. Damn near lost an eye lol. They got steel in them, found out the hard way. Ordered some from kolak.

LOL yeah my rears are worn to the steel I have fronts I thought about trying the same but the hole is a lot smaller in the rear too. Thats why I don't understand how websites are selling aftermarket for front or rear when the shape and hole diameter is different! In fact the two I had on my zj were two different ones, but both had a Chrysler logo. One on the driver's side had a stopper/groove for the top of the spring kind of like the bottom where is sits into the grooves on the axle. And the passenger side was just plain d shape.

Buy from Kolak! My suspension (95 ZJ) including insulators from him have many happy offload miles this year.
