hey folks! sorry ive been searching everywhere couldn't find a straight answer therefore i post..

anyways i gave up on the air suspension on my '02 Bravada...turns out my compressor is taking a crap..so i bought, from strutmasters.com a nice conversion kit with nice new red coil springs and new shocks...it said i'd receive everything i need to convert including any mounts (if necessary)..well all i got was two new springs and two new shock absorbers...

do i need spring isolators, or seats, or mounts whatever they are really called??? what are they for exactly and what do they do?? and wheres the best place i could buy some?

thanks! -Chad

there is a rubber isolator that goes on top. probably for isolating vibration, etc. not critical but cheap enough that you might as well get them

I have done a few conversions for people and never bothered with the isolator. No complaints on vibration or noise. I am not even sure if I have them since I have changed my springs multiple times.
