Like when I'm making a sharp turn it pops somewhat. Spring insulation? Are you referring to the rubberized covering around the coil springs, about the last coil/coil and a half? If so than yes, the eibach springs have that insulation built in at the end. At the top the last coil sits in the "st strut mount" and above that the "st bearing" was pushed inside of that.

This is the only picture I have at the moment.

Looking at it again the insulation I was referring to is actually at the bottom. The lettering "eibach is facing up though. I'm not sure if this is what you were referring to or not towards the bottom (gray rubberized covering).
Again, the spring at the top rest on the lower portion of the plastic st strut mount. Springs are 4.13435

I do think the 3 strut mount bolts on both sides were over torqued. Like 35-40 instead of 10.
