We just installed some hotchkis drop coils on my truck this weekend. I decided not to put the stock coil spring isolators back in with the new coils to get a little more drop. Has anyone else done this or will this cause any big issues down the road? thanks!

I did it that way on mine, on an odd occasion it might squeek
I didn't like the extra height the rubber added.
There are some thin ones made by some vendors out there but I could not find them when I put mine in.

I haven't heard any squeeks yet after 2 days. I wanted to find out before I got it aligned. thanks!

are the hotchkiss coils machined flat on the top? will they seat properly if they are not? i put my ruslow coils in with no isolators, but they are machined flat on top.

The hotchkis coils are designed to go in with the hotchkis lettering facing up. I just got off the phone with Hotchkis. They said you can run with or without the isolators. You will gain a little more drop without and you will "feel" the road more and may have slight road noise. No major issues running them without the isolators.
