Default nasty noise from rear spacers

I got my bilsteins installed on the front of my truck and absolutely love them! Great ride and gave the truck an awesome look. The issue is I got TGC 1" rear spacer and it was installed with the factory isolator as instructed by a grea tech. The thing makes a ton of noise over bumps. Any idea of whats going on or do I just scrap it and go with the more expensive poly spacer?

It's kind of a springy metal noise. I can feel it too.

You're not alone. I have a TGC 2.5 inch rear spacer and i get the same noise from time to time. I would love to figure out why it makes that noise.

I have a creaking/hollow noise and only driving extremely slow and over road imperfections.
Coming from the rear as well.
Been meaning to remove the rear coil spacer to see if its the issue as its annoying
