Guys if you are running sprints you need to check your A/C hose on the front passenger side under the hood. I just noticed that since my springs have settled (a lot) the upper control arm is rubbing through the hose. To fix it, I slipped a piece of cut heater hose over the control arm and then used a hose clamp to keep it from moving or falling off. I didn't see a good way to hold the hose away form the control arm, so this seems like the easiest fix.

You can bend the ac hose up a little at the compressor to get the hose a little farther away.
I had to do the same with Intrax springs. The hose actually rubs with stock springs.

I had the same problem with Hotchkis springs. I was able to bend it far enough away like Troy mentioned so it wont interfere. It did leave a nice little gouge in it though, but luckily no leaks.

I had some cut springs a few years back on a daily driver and the control arm rubbed through the hose, had to replace it.
