I'm getting ready to do my suspension makover next week, including the Tokico kit.

Where do the isolators go and how many are there for front and rear? I need to know what to order.

Are the fronts assembled in the shocks and the rear at the bottom and top of the springs?

I just put in H&R springs in the rear and replaced the top and bottom rubber isolater or whatever it is. I got them from Ford. Some people have replaced the springs with the old rubbers, but I have a problem with using old rubbers :cool:

The fronts have a isolator type deal with three bolts that stick up into the engine compartment. I have new ones for when I put in the new front springs.

the poly unit for the rear actually jack the rear up on mine.

put in the 1.5" eiback prokit and the rear height is about the same as stock spring with factory isolator

Use the ones that came off, unless, they are like really worn through.
If they look like they are just "molded" to the spring, then they should be okay.
If they have worn holes through the rubber, replace em with an OEM type isolator...like Casper said, the poly ones don't squish all that well.

For what its worth, I don't even run the isolators on my rears....the front, well, lets say mine is totally different.

when mine stock one came off, despite with about 160k-170k on it it is still in good condition, put on the poly one anyway since already bought it. should have reuse the stock one.
