I installed a kit from Strutmasters yesterday. It came with two coil springs and two shocks (rear only). Installation was pretty easy, but there was no rubber cushions for the spring perches and there is a rattle coming from the rear now. :suprised; I am almost certain it is the lower spring perch making the noise. I guess I will have to go and buy an isolator of some sort, but I thought it should have been included with the kit.

Has anyone run into this kind of issue? Did you find an isolator that worked?

And oh yeah, I put the car back on my 4-post lift and looked VERY carefully to make sure no metal parts are making contact with something they shouldn't. The installation looks perfect. It's gotta be the spring shifting around on the lower perch.

EDIT: I need something like this, just not sure which set to order, as there are many different sizes:


Many thanks for any help. ;)
