You have provided a lot of good feedback and I plan on buying from you.
I disagree with your statement that the rubber is not needed. The thickness of the rubber will have minimum effect on the ride height, but it provides movement without squeaks and pops. I'm not a mechanic, but as an engineer I understand the function.
Every car I have worked on has rubber between the spring and the perch. Car makers do not add unnecessary parts on their cars unless it is needed.
