Default coil spring isolators

I've got a lot of sqeaking going on, and I'm thinking the rubber spring isolators are worn through. What is the general concensus when replacing these - genuine rubber ($$) or aftermarket polyurethene (cheaper for the pair than one OEM rubber)?

I've got 15mm coil spacers.
All good.

Short term fix grab a spray can of lithium grease and squirt a bit in to the upper coils.

15mm eurethane spacers are ok to replace the thin factory ones, but don't be tempted to put thicker ones in to try and get a cheap lift.

If you want/need lift always do it with springs.
