These guys recommend using spring isolators on top and bottom of both front and rear springs.

110 rear springs are 7" diameter.... The genuine isolators are for 6" springs and thus don't fit.

OME does make poly spring spacers that you could use.

I've not noticed any changes when using an isolator, so I doubt there is any advantage to be gained.

Get Toyota FJ80 isolators, same diameter as 110- and they come in various thicknesses, which help when leveling.

Not sure what you are trying to accomplish though. Good for a small lift. Won't do anything else.

Why? The metal will still touch on the outside.
