Another question, must there be an isolator between the coilspring and the lower control arm? I believe the scratching sound comes from there, is this possible?

The bushings are pressed in. If they went in easy either you have the wrong bushings or your arms are worn.

There's no isolater between the spring and the lower control arm.
