Rubber Coil Spring Isulators
 
When i installed my daystar spacer lift kit a few months ago i noticed the rubber coil spring isulators were completely flat and worn out with cracks...
Now that i am moving up to a Rustys 2.5" spring lift kit im considering replacing the isulators while im at it.
I found all 8 of them at Rockauto.com for about $120 shipped.
I just have a few questions
-Should i replace these?
-Has anyone purchased from rockauto before?
-Should i go with the Raybestos brand or the MOOG brand for these, or do you think they are similar and it doesnt matter?

The cheapest combination for all 8 is Moog for the front lower 2, Raybestos for the front upper 2, Raybestos for the rear lower 2, and moog for the rear upper 2.

Should i combine them like this or stick to one brand, or does it not matter?

Please help if you can and if you have replaced these before.
-Thanks a lot

I have purchased a lot of parts from rockauto, it has always been good stuff and only once a long time ago did I have a problem with a part missing from the order. I would highly recommend them. Raybestos and Moog are both good brands, I am happy with the Moog tie rod ends I have on my jeep and I have used raybestos a lot for brakes.

I would recommend sticking all to one brand, they should all be the same, but there might be something ever so slightly different that will make it hard to fit it all together. Whichever brand totals cheaper, they are both good brands.
