Default Coil Spring Isolators...

How come you have them when you buy all-in-one struts but they're not available separately? Are these things actually available anywhere, or is it off to the pick and pull to get one of these?

I had hedged my bets. I went to a Pick 'N' Pull and grabbed the isolators on the front, as well as a pair of rear strut mounts that had the rubber. At the same time, I ordered two different sets of Energy Suspension coil spring isolators.

Turns out that the rears were unneccessary as the isolators are built into the rear strut mounts. The front isolators could've been made to work somehow with some trimming, but the scavenged original isolators worked a lot better. The SL is a lot less noisy now on low speed turns.

Are "isolators" = "strut mounts" ??

Not on the fronts. These sit between the strut mount and the spring. You'd find them on the all-in-one Quickstruts but they are not sold separately.
