Any experience with DII Rubber front shock tower securing ring on a D90?

I am changing out the springs on my D90 and noticed the DII rubberized shock tower securing ring lines up perfectly.

Anyone running this set up?

On my D1, yes. They are all the same, do provide a little better vibe dampening in theory.

The bolt pattern is the same on most every truck. FWIW I took them off my D2, didn't notice. A little more noise without them.

On a d-90.. has anyone noticed the truck sitting higher in the front? Do I need to had spacers/isolators to the rear to level out?

On my RR Hunter, I run the D2 ring and rubber spring isolators all around.

Had them on my 110. Worked fine. Not sure I noticed the difference. Did not use/need spacers on the rear.

To answer that question, it'll be around .5" or less of an addition of the front.

Yeah, I'd say a 1/4" at best. I actually have a brand new set sitting in a box next to the truck now that I plan to install. Right now I'm just waiting for the chassis to arrive!

Yes, rubberized shock tower part in front and spring isolators on the rear. It doesn't make the ride smoother so much as you don't feel the tires passing through pavement vibrations if that makes sense.
