It will be noisy once a little moisture gets in there. Also, it will increase the wear of the spring seats and the ends of the spring. Pads will not significantly increase your car's height. If you want it a little lower, put some extra weight in the car. They were designed to serve a purpose. They will not do this if they sit in a box in the garage. Ask yourself this question. Does Carlsson recommending installing their springs w/o pads???
