I just installed rear Gen3 air springs today. My concern is that the top of the spring barely sits above the frame (chassis), so that where the air line enters the spring, the air line actually rubs on the frame. Is this normal? I didn't pay attention to know if the old one was the same. If it stays like this, I'm pretty sure the hose will wear through fairly quickly. I've pumped the springs up hoping that would seat them better, but it didn't change anything. I've read a lot of the threads on installing these, and I haven't seen this issue come up. Do they seat in after a bit of driving?

That is the way I remember mine fitting. I was questioning if the line would even go in the fitting.
They seem to still be good almost 10 years later.

In my experience it took driving the vehicle to fully seat the top of the airspring. Prior to this it rubbed on the frame. It's a tight fit and very close to the frame even when fully seated.

Same issue with mine, but all seems well after diving a few hundred kilometres............at the moment!
