Isolator or puck?

Installing a 3/4" daystar puck and the instructions say to put the puck under the factory spring isolator which doesn't seem right to me. I look on project JK puck lift install and it says to put the factory isolator below the puck lift. Which way should it be.

some companies do it one way others do it the other. I don't think it matters one iota in the grand scheme of things. I do like the fact that the factory isolator has a "moat" for the spring to set in. I have done it both ways with the same results. In fact I have one on top and one on bottom of my AEV spacer on the passenger front because that corner was sitting lower and the isolator are cheap and just the right thickness.

The pucks are designed as an extension to the coil not the isolator.

I am not saying you are wrong but what engineering reason is there? I know some lift companies do it one way and others do it the other. why would the coil care what side the isolator was on vs the spacer? Seems like if you have a good fit with either way it would be identical. I know TeraFlex spacers won't fit up in the perch but others fit perfectly like AEV spacers. thanks jeff
