Anyone use these Spring Isolators?

Hey guys just want your opinion on this. So I've been having creaking in the rear from my M5300-p springs. I was hoping these will help. Can't hurt for $9.99. They seem to be a universal application. I found a guy with a 07 mustant using these so Im hoping they will fit my 2011. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have the same springs installed and get the same creaking from the rear. If you do get these, let us know if they work.

I will let you know. If these don't work I am pulling them out and putting something else on.

Those are exactly what you need. Any spring work on the GT or bmw that I've done always have those at the top. I can't imagine not using those.

Well the car comes with them stock, these are just replacement polyurethane ones. Hopefully a little better. I only ordered the bottom ones tho. That is what seems to be the issue. Lets hope these work!

The poly urethane bushings won't be quieter than factory, but provide less squish and longer life.

What I would recommend is brand new factory replacement Ford parts to keep the noise and harshness to stock levels, but if you get the Energy Suspension ones, get the black, not the red. The black ES parts are graphite impregnated and will reduce the chance of squeaking.

Just out of curiosity, how old and how many miles are on the stock bushings, and how long have the new springs been installed?

My car is only 2 months old. The springs have been on for about a month and a half. I noticed creaking as soon as they were put on. I'm so disgusted with them I am read to rip them out and put steedas in.

I find it highly unlikely that swapping the springs will cure your creaking noises unless the springs you currently have are installed incorrectly, or if one of the spring isolators are missing or screwed up. It's also possible that some of the bolts in the rear suspension were not tightened correctly, either too loose or too tight, when the spring swap was done, causing the noises you're hearing.

Do a little more looking over the car for other causes before you spend money on the springs.

Thank you for your input. I plan on taking the car back to the shop hopefully Thursday when the isolators come in. I just hate knowing if I paid for the install to be done, why do I have to then go over the car again and figure this out. But I guess thats what might need to be done. Supposedly the rear springs aren't too bad to install anyway. I just now need to find a DIY on it. Im just getting the urge to get some nice shock as well. Idk if this is needed right now. Especially after dropping a ton on the S/C lol :hihi:
