Daystar spacer lift question

Ok, I've poked around for a few min and haven't found what i was looking for, so here goes. I picked up the Daystar 3/4 lift, the spring spacer type. The instructions don't say, but am i supposed to leave the original spring isolator in place and stack these below them? Not looking to go huge on lift until i wear out the current set of tires, so i grabbed these. Next up will be a 1 in BL and MML followed by a tummy tuck. I'm sure someone will advise against that, but the ONLY time i ever stuck my YJ was on that stupid shovel.

i searched all over for the same answer when i did mine a year ago. all i found was everyone has a different answer. the best i found, and what i did, was to take the original off, put the spacer on, then put the original back on inbetween the new spacer and the spring. i read an article somewhere that said it would help keep the spring from distorting the new spacer and would help with the squeek the spacers sometimes cause by having the rubber inbetween the spring and spacer. so far it has worked fine that way. hope that helps a little.

The last set I installed, zone's, the bottom part of the spacer was molded to mate with the spring. So i left the isoloator in place then installed the spacer follwed by the spring
