Will removing the rear isolator cause lots of noise or adverse effects?

This is a discussion on Will removing the rear isolator cause lots of noise or adverse effects? within the Suspension and Handling forums, part of the General Help category; I'm thinking about removing the rear isolator. I know you can put a hose ontop of there but does it ...

    Will removing the rear isolator cause lots of noise or adverse effects?

    I'm thinking about removing the rear isolator. I know you can put a hose ontop of there but does it matter what kind of hose? Can I do the same for the front? (is there a isolator there too?)

    I just want to lower the rear by another 1 inch and I want to lower the front another 1/4-1/2 (about 3/8) of an inch. I've got the DMS springs but right now the rear is a little to high for my taste.

    Is there another way to lower the rear or front a little?

    thanks,
    P

    doesn't really matter what kind of hose. it's just there so you don't get the metal to metal scraping noises. cannot do it for the front.

    Everyone who removes them uses a watering hose cut lengthways and placed on the top so that there is no noise.

    Mrr23 is right that you will not get a drop in ride hieght so easy in the front.

    Use 5/8 in heater hose and slip it on over the top of the coil....dont split the hose,just trim it to length.
